Touch-less University Lockers


Your students and faculty are already using their University IDs for building access management, paying for meals, library rental, and much more. Why not also use them to unlock and use temporary-use lockers?


Rethink Your Personal Storage Across Campus With Touch-less Lockers

Creating a more seamless, frictionless experience for their students and staff by leveraging the university ID, beyond just an ID, will prove to be vital to the overall function of the university campus.

Provide students and staff touch-less lockers across campus to improve campus-life experience by having a temporary place to call their own to store their personal belongings, class projects, a change of clothes in the fitness facilities, and much more. Touch-less lockers can be accessed by the university ID, physical card or mobile credential, which allows students/staff to not need to remember a 4-digit PIN or carry around a padlock. 

As a university, there is an opportunity to market these integrations with mobile access as a point of differentiation when attracting students. And at the same time, universities benefit from a convenient, streamlined ID card management process.

There is Much More Behind These Beautiful Lockers

Let's explore some of the locker features:

Cleanability of Lockers is Taken to a Whole Different Level


Cleanliness is the topic of conversation lately. Because our touch-less lockers don't have any locks mounted to the door fronts (like your traditional battery-operated lock would), our lockers have super clean lines and no protrusions on the doors making them easier to clean. And the interaction with the lockers is practically touchless, requiring only a nudge of an elbow to shut the door after depositing or retrieving belongings. But our lockers can do more than just that...

Locks so smart they know when the locker needs cleaning.

No need to worry about using a locker that hasn't been cleaned after the previous user. When lockers are unassigned to a specific user and the person is done using it for the day, our smart locking solution can lock that locker down until cleaning staff has had the opportunity to clean and disinfect the locker. Once cleaned, the locker would become accessible for use again. 


Usage-Based Cleaning

Rather than having every locker cleaned every night by your cleaning staff, save time by only cleaning the lockers that were used. Administratively, you can temporarily assign cleaning crews access to specific lockers.



Contactless Exchange of
Goods at the University Libraries

Create a frictionless and contactless experience with smart lockers for university libraries across campus to easily exchange borrowed materials and more.

Access Management Integration & Security

Metra Locking Systems, as a HID™ Advantage Technology Partner, offers an easy to integrate smart locker solution for university lockers across campus, so your students and faculty can unlock their smart lockers with their University IDs — including using mobile credentials in a phone app or even in their wearable, like a smart watch. Universities, which use HID™ access control systems, can now easily extend their access security level to all their workplace lockers.

HID Mobile Access® opens doors in a whole new way. With an innovative, patented gesture technology, just twist the mobile device upon approaching a locker for seamless access.

Social Distancing Isn't Just For You and Me

Eliminate the risk of having your employees stand shoulder-to-shoulder in order to put their belongings in their locker for the day. You can manage your lockers to create safe social distances between what lockers can be accessed and when, by programming the lockers so that some locker columns or openings are not accessible at certain times.

With smarter locking, what else can these lockers do?

Locker Audit & Occupancy Reporting

Get all the details behind your lockers. Know who is accessing what locker, which lockers are accessed the most and when they are accessed. Having this information could aide in contact tracing.

Access Lockers via WiFi App

Often used as a backup key, in case you lost your badge or fob, the WiFi app can open up your unassigned or assigned locker with just a few buttons on your smartphone.


Mixed-Use Within the Same Bank

Have some of your lockers assigned-use for your employees and others unassigned-use for visitors, contractors or temps within the same locker bank. 

Rental Lockers

Lockers can even integrate with your POS system, add additional peripherals for cashless payment to rent lockers for temporary use or integrate into your existing Smart Building App.
