If you’re a bike commuter or student with a set of two wheels, you’ll want to be mindful of where you lock up beginning this fall. The Department of Public Safety along with the Office of Sustainability, Residence Life, and the Student Government Association have come together to conduct a pilot project to alleviate some of the bicycle parking congestion on campus. A color-coded system will be used to distinguish commuter bike racks from residence hall bike racks.
The goal of the project, which kicks off for fall semester 2016, is to provide enough assigned bicycle parking for both residents and commuters, particularly in the area centered around the Bell Building, McAlister Residence Hall and Berry Residence Hall.
Maroon racks are for residents only, gold racks are for commuters only, and black racks can be used by either groups of cyclists. For maps and photos of rack locations, view this handy guide.
All bicycles using parking spaces on campus must be registered with the College’s Department of Public Safety and have the identifying sticker attached to the bicycle. Stickers will be given to students during move-in and during the first week of classes for those attending classes in the Bell Building, but you can stop by Public Safety at any time to receive one.
