Thank you for bicycling to campus – we appreciate your efforts in using alternate modes of transportation to get to campus. In order to provide sufficient parking for bicycles, all bicycles must display an annual bicycle parking permit. Bicycle permits are free and can be obtained directly online on our website or at the Parking and Transportation Services Department located off Sixteenth Street. Please log in from our home page to obtain a bike permit, or you may request a permit by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please park your bike in a campus bike rack or bike locker. It is necessary to enforce this policy to abide by campus safety and ADA regulations. Bicycles cannot be parked in pedestrian access routes or chained to any object other than a bike rack. For your convenience, bicycle lockers are available on campus for a fee of $30 per year as well as a $40 refundable deposit on a locker key. Please contact the Parking and Transportation Services office to find out the availability of bike lockers and for a bike locker application. Bicycle tire pumping stations are located on campus for your use, free of charge. In addition, when you register your bike with the Parking and Transportation Services Department, you may obtain 5 free daily parking permits for your vehicle on those days when riding your bike is not an option.
Use bicycle parking racks or bicycle lockers at all times. Use a good lock. U-bolt type locks are the best. Always lock the frame, not the wheel. If riding at night, lock your bike at well-lighted rack. Record your serial number and register your bicycle Free of Charge with the Parking and Transportation Services Department. If your bicycle is lost or stolen, please report it with the University of Nevada, Reno Police Department.
