Bicycles

Students are encouraged to use bicycles as their main mode of transportation around campus, because the Zone Parking Plan limits travel by motor vehicle during the daytime hours on weekdays.

Bicycles must be registered in the Campus Security & Police Office within 48 hours of being brought to campus. Registration is free; failure to register a bike or display the decal on the bicycle will result in a $5 fine to be paid within 10 days of issue.

In general, serial numbers are required for registration of bicycles; if, however, a serial number cannot be located, Campus Security & Police personnel can engrave an identification number on the bicycle in an inconspicuous place.

Bicycles should not be parked inside any College building. Bicycles found in buildings contrary to regulations may be taken to Buildings and Grounds, where they will be returned to the owner on payment of a $50 fine.

Bicyclists should use the bicycle racks provided and not place bicycles against buildings, bushes, or trees. Bicycles should be locked at all times when not in use.

All bicycles used at night are required to have reflectors and lights.

During Thanksgiving break, between the fall and spring semesters, and during spring break, unlocked bicycles may be picked up and stored by Campus Security & Police. There will be a $20 fee for each bicycle picked up, plus a $10 per week storage fee for each bicycle stored more than one week after classes resume. Additionally, bicycles stored more than 30 days are considered abandoned property to be used, or disposed of, by the College.
