Central Area bike stores
The University provides bike stores across the Central Area.
The locations of the Central Area stores are provided in the map and table below.
Access to the stores is by key, combination lock, or University card and PIN. Keys and codes are supplied either by the Transport and Parking Office, or a member of staff local to the store.
Using your University card & PIN
In most cases, where a bike store is controlled by University card & PIN, all staff and students should automatically have access without needing to register.
Simply swipe your card against the reader, then enter your PIN into the keypad. If you don't know your PIN, you can change it by following the instructions here.
The exception is the Bristo Bike Store, where users must request access by contacting the Transport and Parking Office first.
