Secure Bike Parking

A key component of the University’s broader objective to create a sustainable campus is developing a safe, inviting and convenient active transportation network. Cycling provides a quick and fun way to get to and around the University in a way that is good for both personal health and the environment. 

To help enhance the existing cycling infrastructure on campus and help remove barriers to a greater cycling uptake, a secure bike storage facility has been installed in the courtyard between Mackintosh-Corry Hall and Dunning Hall.

In addition to the installed traditional bike racks, which users are encouraged to use, the facility is secured by a 10-foot tall metal fence with an access-controlled point of entry.  The location also benefits from overhead shelter, a hard surface, enhanced lighting and the available basic bike tool stand. The storage area has capacity for about 90 bicycles at any given time.
