Renting a bike locker is an inexpensive way to protect your investment. The fully enclosed, water-resistant locker helps to protect your bike from the elements, and the lock and key system eliminates theft and vandalism worries.
Bike lockers are conveniently located next to the following halls or complexes:
- Studebaker West
- Anthony Apartments
The rental fee is only $50 for the academic year.
To rent a bike locker, open the Bike Locker Contract (PDF) (must have Adobe Acrobat), type in your information, print, sign your name, and mail or deliver to our office at LaFollette Complex, room N-10.
Once your agreement is processed, you will be assigned a locker and given your key upon move-in to the residence halls. The bike locker charge will be billed to your Bursar account in September.
Because of limited supply, lockers are rented on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registering Your Bike
To keep your bike safe on campus, we strongly recommend registering your bike with the University Police Department.
The increasing popularity of bicycling as a sport and a means of transportation has made bicycles an easy target for thieves. It is estimated that over 1.5 million bicycles are stolen every year. Nowhere is bicycle theft a bigger problem than on college campuses.
Bikes that are registered are more likely to be recovered and returned to their owners if they are stolen.
The bicycle registration information is kept on file at Ball State University Police Department, so even if the owner has graduated or moved, Ball State police will be able to provide ownership information on the bicycle.
About the Program
The bicycle registration program is essentially a database of bike information – the owner’s identification along with the brand, model, serial number, and color of the bicycle.
The purpose of the program is to help the bike owner protect their property.
Bikes that are registered are less likely to be stolen, and if stolen and recovered, more likely to be returned to their owners. The bicycle registration information is kept on file at Ball State University Police Department, so even if the owner has graduated or moved, Ball State police will be able to provide ownership information on the bicycle.
You will need to provide your bike’s serial number in order to register it. These are generally stamped onto the bicycle frame (not on wheels, etc.). It usually starts with SN and is rarely a sticker.
Register Your Bike
Any Ball State student, faculty or staff member can register their bicycle online.
