Lockers - keep your gear safe

Lockers generic shot

Securing your gear while you exercise gives you peace of mind, but not many other gyms in Christchurch offer a place to stash your belongings.

There are a number of cubby holes around the centre, if you just want to stash your bag for your workout. These are not secure, so you leave things at your own risk (but we do have camera surveillance).

Store your board

Skateboard wall racks are provided, please use them to keep the floors clear of tripping hazards.

Small valuables

Valuables can be left with reception, at your own risk. We will only hold onto small items (wallets, keys, cellphones).

A limited number of padlocks are available at reception at no charge for lockers marked DAILY USE ONLY.

Simply exchange your membership or UC Card. We'll return it to you when you return the lock.

Ensure you don't miss out

Bring your own lock, or purchase one at reception to ensure you can secure your belongings without charge.

Don't forget to remove the lock

Padlocks left overnight will be cut and removed, and UC RecCentre will not pay for a replacement. Your gear will be kept for up to one month in our lost property boxes.

Regular users may decide they need permanent storage at the RecCentre.

Purchase a locker

  • $20 for one semester, $30 for both semesters, or $50 for almost the full year (hire from early January, empty mid-December)
  • Bring your own lock or purchase one from Reception
  • All gear must be removed from lockers at the specified date. You will receive notification in your locker, and to the email address provided at time of hiring
  • Unemptied lockers will have the locks removed and items bagged up and left at reception for three months. UC RecCentre will not replace your lock or reimburse you for the cost of a new one.
  • Locker hire cannot be rolled over into the new year.

Selecting a locker

  • Look for a blank locker number in the location you want (make sure it doesn't have a sticker 'DAILY USE ONLY' or 'HIRED' already on it). These lockers are available for permanent use.
  • Advise reception of the number at time of purchase and we'll double check it is available before issuing it to you.

UC RecCentre is not responsible for any lost, damaged or stolen items while stored in lockers, or for those cleared or removed from misused lockers. We will store cleared gear/toiletries for 1 month before disposal.

Any problems

Someone else's gear in your locker? If you have a problem with your locker, see reception and we'll sort it out.
