How to access the cycling facilities on Campus

cycle-compound-smallThe cycling facilities at both campuses are available to all students. These include secure storage compounds, changing rooms, lockers and shower facilities. To access these please take your student card to Poole House Reception and ask for access to the relevant areas.

Please ensure you secure your bike properly, we would recommend investing in a D lock to secure your bike. Subsidised D locks are available from the Students Union shop. More information on cycle safety and security can be found on the Student Portal.
