Parking your bike
Lock your bike. Always lock the frame, not just the wheel! We highly recommend purchasing a hefty U-lock rather than a skinny cable lock as they are harder to break. Register your bike with the Office of Parking Operations and record the serial number. This info will be important in case your bike is ever stolen.
Bicycles on campus should only be locked to bicycle racks. Don’t lock your bike to any other object. IU may remove your bicycle if it is locked to anything other than a bike rack.
The Office of Parking Operations will assess a $20 fine for each of these violations:
- Impeding pedestrian traffic, including access for people with disabilities
- Parking in administrative or classroom buildings (unless otherwise designated), and residence hall stairwells or hallways
- Parking or fastening bikes to bus shelters, bushes, trees or plants, disabled ramps, electrical fixtures fences, handrails, light poles, telephone poles, public seating, signs, pipes (e.g., water, steam, gas), or trash cans; or
- Occupying more than one bike space.
