Unity Locker Application

Anyone with an active Unity/Eos account (e.g., student, faculty, staff, department) may rent a Unity locker from the Office of Information Technology (OIT). This is extra file storage space that is separate from one's AFS Home folder.
NOTE: To request more space in an AFS Home folder, use the interactive form on the SysNews Purchased Space page.

To request a locker, complete the application below and submit it from your Web browser. Before you do, please note the following:

  • You are responsible for ensuring that no personal information is maintained in a locker that has been rented for University business.
  • Abuse of any resource supplied by OIT may result in termination of computer access.
  • For information about lockers, fees and uses, see Unity Lockers.
  • If you are an instructor who would like to set up a course locker, you can obtain one free of charge with up to 100 MB of space. For details, see the WolfWare Help page.
Please complete the following. Your application will be processed only if you complete all of the fields.

Purpose of this locker
