St. Bonaventure University is dedicated to promoting bicycling as a safe, fun, economical, efficient environmentally friendly and healthy transportation alternative for the SBU campus community.
Students and employees are strongly encouraged to register their bicycles. Registration is free, serves as a deterrent to theft, and can help in the recovery of stolen bicycles. The serial number (if available), make, model, and color are recorded and an identifying sticker (permit) is placed on the bicycle.
Any bicycle stored or operated on campus should have a valid permit affixed to it and must be parked in a bike rack, locked, and in operable condition. Bicycles may be impounded throughout the year for being improperly stored. We also provide free indoor storage for any registered bicycle.
Bicycles attached to signs, trees, posts or anything other than a bike rack may be impounded and a fee assessed. In addition, bicycles found in the stairwells of buildings will be impounded due to fire code regulations. Operable bicycles left on University property for a period longer than 48 hours may also be impounded. Locks that are cut or damaged during removal will not be replaced by SBU.
In order to accommodate the maintenance of the bike rack areas, bicycles may not be stored on campus during the summer months, unless the bicycle is being used. If you are a returning summer student with a bicycle, please email email@example.com or call 716-375-2527 to make arrangements.
At the end of the Spring Semester, a University-wide bicycle "cleanup" is performed. Bicycles that are unregistered or inoperable will be placed in a SBU campus wide auction. Bicycles not sold in the auction will be discarded or destroyed. Thank you for your cooperation.
