Bringing your bike to Campus?

By JForrester 10 Aug 2021

How do I get access to the bike shed?

  1. You will need to complete the bike.
  2. Once completed you will be provided with a numbered bike tag and cable tie to attach to your bike for identification purposes.

If you complete this form before you arrive the tag be with your keys. If you complete it after you arrive, we will be in touch to let you know where to collect your tag or deliver it to you.

Access to the bike shed nearest to your accommodation will be added to your accommodation key card. If you live in The Hollies you will receive a key fob and if you live in Glenside you will receive the key pad code in the envelope with your bike tag.

Where are the bike sheds located?

  • Wallscourt Park – Bike Shed 2 (next to House 27), Bike Shed 3 (next to House 15) Bike Shed 4 (opposite Block 1 Flats)
  • Purdown View - while we're completing the complex, ask Customer Services which sheds you can access
  • Glenside – Bike Stores at Aspen, Beech, Chestnut, Hazel, Juniper, Laburnum, Poplar and Sycamore
