Campus Safety highly recommends all students store their bikes in their rooms for block break to prevent them from being stolen.

On December 20th, Campus Safety will be removing bikes from campus bike racks that appear to be abandoned, such as bikes with flat tires, missing parts or left unlocked will be removed. Bike owners will have till January 19th to reclaim their bike, at that time all bikes will be donated. Campus Safety are putting orange tags on bikes that say “Abandoned Property” to specify which bikes that will be removed. To help prevent your bike from being taken, store your bike in your room or work area for the break. Any questions, contact Campus Safety.
