Campus Bike Resources

Campus Bike Racks

Please be sure to properly secure your bicycle to one of the many bike racks located around campus. Please do not secure your bicycle to an unauthorized object such as a tree, lamp post, or stairway railing. A new city ordinance prohibits bicycles from being parked against such structures on King St. and provides a number of new bike racks and corrals between Calhoun and Spring Streets to facilitate legal bike parking. See this flyer for a map of all new bike racks and an explanation of these regulations.

Please see the Department of Public Safety's official policies on bicycle operation and parking for more detailed information.
