What are the rules about bicycing on campus?

The Campus Policy for Bicycles, Skateboards, Rollerskates and Scooters governs the operation and use of bicycles for the University community.

  • The speed limit on sidewalks is 10 mph. You are responsible for safely operating your bicycle on campus bicycle paths and lanes.
  • Bicycles should always be locked to a bike rack. You will receive a citation and your bike can be impounded if you lock to anything other than a bike rack.
  • Bicycles are not allowed in University buildings except when using indoor secure parking.
  • An electric (e-bike) bike is classified under Utah law as a bicycle. E-bikers are subject to the same operating rules as a regular bicycle.

  

How do I report a stolen bicycle?

  • File a report with the University police by calling 801-585-COPS. 
  • Report your bike stolen where you registered it — the Bike Index and Commuter Services.
  • Spread the word on social media and check the classifieds.
  • If you find your bike, contact the University police with your case number.
