[IMPORTANT] Locker Notice Apr 14, 2014

To all students:

If you have not cleared out your locker from the Winter 2014 term, it is your responsibility to remove your belongings by April 30th, 2014. Anything left in lockers that should be empty after this date will be confiscated by the ISSS and held until claimed by the owner. If your belongings were removed from your locker, please send an email to lockers@isss.ca with your CCID and a specific description of the items that were lost. Be aware that there may be delays as the ISSS is currently transitioning to a new team of Executives and Directors.

If you would like to rent a locker for the Spring/Summer terms to avoid having your belongings confiscated from your current locker, please email lockers@isss.ca as soon as possible.

Have a good summer!
