Theft Prevention

Theft Prevention

  • When locking a bicycle, always secure both the frame and quick-release wheel to the rack with a lock.
  • Invest in a high-quality U-lock to provide adequate security while parking your bicycle.
  • All bicycles parked on campus must be registered with Transportation Services.
  • Keep a record of the bicycle's serial number, make, model, and registration.

If a bicycle is stolen and recovered, or impounded, the owner must be able to provide the serial number or university registration information as proof of ownership.
