Lockers and coat storage at the Gym

In the entrance area of the Gym there are shoe and coat racks for outdoor equipment. For small valuables there are little lockers that you can use during your workout. If you so wish, you can use your own padlock in the locker door.

The lockers are to be used during workout only. This is why the lockers are kept an eye on and  those locked for overtime are emptied out daily. Lost and found items can be requested after at the Rentukka info desk.
