  • Be sure to park your bike in designated bicycle racks or lockers provided on all campuses.
  • Bicycles attached to trees, handrails, signposts or fixtures on access ramps can and may be removed by University security.
  • Bicycles or bike locks left on campus for long periods of time will be considered abandoned and may be removed.
  • Enquiries relating to abandoned, removed or stolen bicycles should be directed to University  Security.
  • Police recommend that bicycles are secured with a good quality bike lock. Cable locks and chains are less secure than U-shaped steel locks. Please ensure you take your lock with you when collecting your bike.
  • The roads on and around University campuses and sites are public roads and public road rules apply. This includes the requirement to wear a helmet and comply with speed limits on University roads.
  • You must dismount when taking your bike along walkways on campus.

Bicycle parking facilities that are kept secure via access control or a manual locking mechanism must not be left open under any circumstances. Penalties may apply to anyone providing unauthorised access to bicycle parking areas and secured facilities.

Cyclists bring bikes to University sites and campuses at their own risk. The University does not accept any liability for damage to or theft of bicycles and related equipment.
