Bike Lockers & Sheltered Bike Parking

Bike Lockers & Sheltered Bike Parking

Bike lockers and sheltered bike parking are available for University students, staff, and faculty on campus through contracts that run from October 1 - September 30.

Contracts are $40 per year, payable in advance, with bike lockers requiring an additional refundable key deposit for $60. 

Contracts can be purchased at any time throughout the year.

If you sign up for a space between May 15 and the annual billing date of August 15, you will have access to the space but will not be charged until the annual August billing date.

Contracts are auto renewing. Invoices for the next annual billing cycle will be sent on August 15 each year to be paid by October 1.

There are no refunds for early cancellations.


Bike Lockers

Bike Locker

Enclosed lockers will keep your bike sheltered and out of sight. Lockers fit most standard bikes.

Visit the Campus Biking Map to see locker locations.

Bike locker contracts are in high demand and most locations have a wait list. We can put your name on a waiting list and requests will be prioritized in the order they are received.

Fill out the Bike Locker Request Form to request a bike locker.

Cancellations require the locker key to be returning in working order to get your deposit fee back.  Once the key is verified, a check will be mailed to you for the key deposit fee. There are no refunds for early cancellations.  To return your key:

  • Walk into the PTS office and turn in your bike locker key. Office hours are online.
  • Mail your bike locker key to the PTS main office (the contract cancellation date will be the postmark date).
    • DO NOT mail the bike locker key in a regular envelope. Please use a padded mailing envelope. If the key is damaged in any way and does not work, the key deposit will not be returned.
