Cycling facilities on campus

Please keep to the designated cycle paths on campus.

Where to park your bike on campus

There are a number of bicycle racks distributed across Falmer campus where you can park your bicycle. You should park your bike in one of the designated areas, where cycle stands are provided.

There is an ongoing programme to increase and improve the range of cycle parking and shower facilities available on campus, including the possible installation of secure, covered shelters.

You are not allowed to park your bike in buildings or where it is liable to cause an obstruction, e.g. secured to a fence alongside a walkway or at the entrance to a building. Do not chain bikes to fire exits, or they will be removed by Security.

We do keep an eye out for abandoned bicycles. If you leave your bike locked up on campus for a lengthy period, we will issue a warning that we are going to remove it within two weeks. If your bike is still in the same location by then, we will remove it and place it in our compound for a further two weeks. You can reclaim it from there. After that, it will be recycled!

Bike security

We take crime prevention seriously and crime is generally low on campus; however, securing your bicycle is your responsibility.

We recommend you use a strong D-lock to secure your bicycle at all times and avoid using a cable lock, which can be cut through easily by bike thieves.

For a quick guide on how to lock your bike securely, watch this video.
