Trotter Multicultural Center

Student Organization Locker Policy

Effective: September 20, 2019                                                                                    

Trotter Multicultural Center (TMC) offers recognized student organizations at the University of Michigan the ability to store items for events and programs.  Student organizations granted storage space are responsible for managing their possessions regularly.  Due to a finite amount of storage space, Trotter Multicultural Center is accepting applications.

All storage lockers provided to student organizations are provided for the duration of the academic year.  The storage area is located in the Student Organization Lounge (SOL)— Room 2025 at Trotter Multicultural Center and lockers are assigned using a variety of factors including date of application submission, application responses, and need until all available spaces are allocated. The storage term begins on the first day of classes each academic school year and ends on the last day of the Winter semester.  There is no summer storage and all lockers must be emptied of all contents by the last day of the Winter semester. For more information, please contact Trotter Multicultural Center at TrotterLockers@umich.edu
