ESS Services - for you!

Every undergraduate student in the Faculty of Environment contributes $12.50 each term to the Environment Students' Society. This contribution allows us to provide many useful services to you and our faculty! 

Locker Rentals

ESS has a variety of full and half size lockers available for rental in the EV1, EV2, and EV3 buildings. Feel free to visit us in our office or email vpoperations.ess@uwaterloo.ca if you have any questions.

  • Lockers run on a deposit system ($20), which will be returned to you at the end of the term if your locker is clean, empty, and in good condition. Please pay in cash in our office!
  • Starting January 2020, ESS will now be providing locks for all lockers. These locks have resettable combinations, so you can choose your own combination at the beginning of the term. Only ESS-provided locks can be used on our lockers.
  • Please note that lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Disclaimer: the renter agrees that the Environment Students' Society is not responsible for any items stored within lockers and will not be held responsible for any losses or damages. The renter further agrees that payment is required in full in order to rent the locker for one academic term, otherwise the contents within the locker are subject to immediate removal. Finally, the renter agrees to vacate the locker by the last day of classes for that term. Any items within the locker are subject to immediate removal if the renter fails to vacate the locker by this date.
