APPROPRIATE USE OF CYCLE SHELTERS ON CAMPUS:
The cycle shelters are for use during periods of work/study at the University ONLY and should NOT be used for long-term storage of bicycles.
Any bicycle left in a shelter for an extended period of time (more than 4 weeks) may be removed and donated to charity under the provisions of the policy for dealing with abandoned bicycles (see below).
The University will not accept liability for any loss or damage to bicycles removed under the terms of this policy.
We recommend that when you park your bicycle, you always lock up your bike with a good quality D-lock, even if you are using the secure shelters. The locks are available to staff and students at a discounted price (for further details visit the University estore).
If using one of the cycle shelters, we ask that you remain vigilant and mindful of the safety and security of yours and your colleagues’ property. For further information and advice about keeping your bicycle safe, visit the University Security Department.
During vacation and before the start of each new semester a visual check of all cycle sheds and racks will be undertaken by the Environmental Sustainability team. Any cycle identified as possibly abandoned will be treated as follows:
Any bicycles deemed to be beyond repair will be stripped of all useful spare parts and these will be given to the charity for use on other cycles. All remaining parts will be disposed of by Environmental Services.
If you notice any abandoned bicyles, please report them to email@example.com.
