Without arguing for or against lockers one possibility... .  We could 
use train station lockers - put in coin(s) & take the key.  I think that 
those have someone with a passkey who opens them again if you have left 
stuff in more than 24 hours.   In this configuration the main purpose of 
lockers would be as a place to put your stuff when you go out for food.  
We would need means of letting the world know when the lockers might be 
opened - a sign that says - 'opened at 9AM'   or?

For consideration.
