Want to freshen up after biking to campus? Students can use the locker rooms and showers at the Student Recreation Wellness Center (SRWC) or gain access to the Kinesiology Locker Room for $10/semester by filling out the Kinesiology Locker Room Registration Form.
Staff and faculty qualify for even longer term rentals and are exempt from the $10 rental fee. Staff and faculty should request a locker in person from the locker room attendant in the Kinesiology Building.
We recommend the use of a U-Lock device rather than a chain or cable to protect your bike. Registering your bike also provides helpful information to law enforcement in the event your bike is stolen and increases the likelihood that your bike will be recovered.
To register your bicycle, please contact University Police at 562.985.4101. This service is provided free of charge. Please bring a proof of purchase if you have it available.
The Campus Wheel Paths project was designed to provide students with a safe, comfortable and easy-to-use wayfinding system throughout campus and encourage sustainable methods of transportation.
