Bike registration is easy, free to students and employees, and required

All bicycles on campus must be registered with the University. Your bicycle is not protected until you attach the registration tag to your bike.

Campus police, parking, and facilities staff need proof of ownership in order to protect or return your bike!

Registration can be done online and there is no charge to students, faculty, and staff. You just need to provide the bicycle’s serial number, manufacturer, model, and color, along with your contact information. Once your registration is complete you can pick up your registration tag at the Campus Bike Center.
