University Smart Storage & Locker Applications

A day in the life of a college student or faculty member can include more than a few stops — here are just some of the potential applications for smart storage and lockers in a university or school setting:

Day-Use Lockers

Make it possible for students and faculty to stash and retrieve items from classrooms, student centers, and unions.

It's All About the
Student Experience

Just last year Apple made the move to expand its contactless student ID program to more colleges, with 12 more colleges deploying the technology. What this means to students is no more worrying about their physical ID Cards and they can leave their physical wallets at home. By adding their student ID to their Apple Wallet, they can hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader anywhere the student ID is accepted on and off campus.

"This technology has been newly added to Clemson University, Georgetown University, University of Tennessee, University of Kentucky, University of San Francisco, University of Vermont, Arkansas State University, South Dakota State University, Norfolk State University, Louisburg College, University of North Alabama, and Chowan University campuses. The deployment is in addition to existing installations at Duke University, University of Oklahoma, University of Alabama, Temple University, Johns Hopkins University, Marshall University, and Mercer University."
