Bicycles, Lawns, Mail, Pets, & Roofs

Everyone is allowed to bring a bicycle to the campus. All students MUST register their bicycles with Campus Safety.  This is a free service.  Students are responsible for providing their own locks and should always lock their bicycles to avoid problems with theft,. Please use the Online Bike Registration form . 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.

Riders should ride on paths and roadways when riding on campus, Please do not ride across the greens.

Bicycles are to be stored in bicycle storage sheds and “ribbon” bike racks located throughout campus. Bikes are not permitted to be stored in hallways,  stairways, or basements 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.

It is recommended that students always lock their bikes.

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 bikes will not be released until the bike is properly registered with Campus Safety.


Great care is taken to keep our beautiful campus, grounds and arboretum in excellent shape for all to enjoy.

Driving or parking cars or motorcycles on paths or across the lawns at any time for any reason is prohibited. Violation of this regulation will result in being asked to immediately remove the car or motorcycle and a fine. Please review the Parking Regulations.

Small fish, birds, and reptiles are allowed as long as roommates and/or suitemates do not object; the pet must be in good health and must not pose any health risk and the pet and its surrounds must be kept clean and odor free. Students are responsible for keeping their pet in good health, their surrounds clean, and any damage a pet may cause.

The College reserves the right to ask that the pet be removed if problems arise.

Students are prohibited from having any fur-bearing animals in the residence halls.  Any student found to be keeping a fur-bearing animal or any prohibited animal in any of the residence halls must remove the pet immediately. If the student does not comply, they will be fined $100.00, lose their right to live in College housing, and must move out within two days.

The only exceptions are for service and support animals which have been approved by the College prior to arrival.


For safety and security reasons no one except College-authorized personnel is allowed on a roof or ledge of any residence hall, or those of any other campus buildings and structures. Because of the risk of serious bodily injury or death, failure to comply may jeopardize a student’s right either to remain in current College housing or to obtain such housing in the future.  Any student found on the roof or ledge of a College building or structure, will, in addition, be subject to a fine of $250. Other sanctions may also apply.
