Everyone is allowed to bring a bicycle to the campus. To avoid problems with theft, all students MUST register their bicycles – for free – with Campus Safety. Students are responsible for providing their own locks and should always lock their bicycles. Please use the Online Bike Registration form www.haverford.edu/security/bikeregistration.php After submitting the form, you should receive an email from Campus Safety confirming your registration and providing instructions on how to have your bike engraved with a unique identification number. At the time of engraving, a decal will be issued to the owner that must be affixed to the bicycle.
Bicycles are to be stored in bicycle storage sheds and “Ribbon” bike racks located throughout campus. Bikes cannot be stored in hallways or stairways at any time; doing so creates a safety hazard in the event of a building emergency. Bikes left in these locations will be impounded by Campus Safety. Owners of impounded bikes have 30 days to reclaim a bike: otherwise, the College will dispose of the bike as it sees fit. There will be a $25.00 fee to reclaim any impounded bike.
Riders should ride on paths and roadways when riding on campus, Please do not ride across the greens.
Registered bike owners who have lost their keys may request Facilities Management to drill out the lock for a $15.00 fee. The student must first verify ownership with Campus Safety. Upon verification, students should take the verification form to Facilities Management and submit a request. Unregistered bike owners follow the same procedures as registered owners, but must present a signed written description of their bicycle to Campus Safety in order for Facilities process the request. This process may take several days depending on the Facilities department’s workload. Once the bike is removed, Facilities will deliver the bike to Campus Safety where it can be picked up. Unregistered bike will not be released until the bike is properly registered with Campus Safety.
