Bike Sheds Access

If you would like access to the bike sheds on campus please complete the form below to submit a request. You must be a currently enrolled student or a staff member to receive access. In using the bike shed you agree to the below conditions of use.

Bike shed access requests typically take 2-3 business days to process and are processed in the order that we receive them. Please ensure that all requests are submitted in advance, to avoid any inconvenience

Limitation on parking

  • Bikes that are locked up or left on university grounds for more than 30 days may be deemed 'abandoned' and gifted to a charity or not-for profit organisation
  • Secure bike sheds and racks are available on a first-come, first served basis and spaces cannot be ‘reserved’ by leaving locks on them overnight or on weekends.
  • Rusted and cobwebbed bike locks left unused in University bike cages for long periods of time may be removed in order to keep facilities in good condition and make room for current staff and students to park their bikes.
