Bicycle Registration

UNCP BICYCLE REGISTRATION POLICY

In order to help you protect your bicycle, the UNCP University Police requires that every bicycle that is operated on campus be registered with the University Police Department. Every bicycle must have a registration permit.

HOW TO REGISTER YOUR BIKE

Registering your bicycle at UNCP is a cost-free service provided by University Police! Students must come to the UNCP University Police Department, which is located in the Business Services Building directly behind the UNCP Bookstore, and fill out a bicycle registration form. When students complete the form a permit will be issued to the student. The permit is to be affixed to the front wheel forks or handle bars. The permit will be valid from August to August. The permits are not transferable, so if a student buys a new bicycle a new permit will be required.

REGISTERING YOUR BICYCLE WILL SERVE THE FOLLOWING PURPOSES:

  • A deterrent to crime
  • Assist in the identification of lost or stolen bicycles
  • Assist in the speedy return of recovered bicycles
  • Assist in identifying violators of bicycle policy

Bicycle parking is available throughout the campus and is designated by the presence of bicycle racks. Bicycles must be parked and/or chained only in the bicycle racks, and they cannot be chained to any other fixed object and/or parked so as to impede pedestrian traffic in or near the buildings.
