Bicycle Registration

All bicycles on-campus must be registered with the Office of Parking and Transportation. Bicycle registration prevents theft and assists with the recovery of stolen bicycles. Failure to register a bicycle can result in fines or impoundment of the bicycle.

Registration is free and can be accessed through the parking services portal .

After registering, bicyclists will receive a decal in the mail. These decals do not have an expiration, even if there is an expiration date on them. Once the decal is received, place it facing upward on the bicycle frame near the handlebars.
