Bicycle Storage

Storage - Bicycles: There are a variety of bicycle parking options associated with housing facilities: stand alone bike lockers, bike cages in covered parking areas, open racks around the perimeter of residence halls and sometimes in lounge spaces inside, code access to bike storage rooms accessed from outside the building(s), dedicated bike storage rooms inside residence halls, etc.  Access to secured storage areas (lockers, containers, cages, locked rooms) can be obtained from the Dept. of Housing and Residence Life office in Crosby, free of charge!  Bicycles left behind after a residence hall closes for the year will be deemed abandoned, collected, and donated to charity. Please remember your bike when you move back home for the summer.

Bike Theft: The University is not responsible for loss or damage related to bicycle storage, regardless of how secure you believe the storage area is/was. The majority of bike theft at GU is accomplished on bicycles secured by “cable” locks. Please use a U-bolt type bike lock (available from Campus Public Safety and Security for less cost than stores!) to protect your bike as they are the best deterrent to theft.  In addition, the Campus Security office encourages you to register your bicycle with them for free.  A Spokane database of registered bicycles exists which helps the police return stolen bikes to owners throughout Spokane! 

Storage - Personal belongings: The University does not allow storage of student belongings between academic years. The Office of Housing and Residence Life can provide you with a list of off-site storage companies in the nearby area. Such a list is also a normal part of our closing newsletter to each resident in the late spring. Items are not permitted to be stored in residence hall common areas.
