All buildings on campus are equipped with bicycle infrastructure. The University provides bicycle racks outside of every building and every residential facility has indoor bicycle storage areas. Showering facilities and lockers are available to all students, faculty, and staff at our athletic center.
All occupied buildings are equipped with at least one exterior bicycle rack. For long-term storage there are covered bicycle racks and/or designed bicycle storage areas inside of the buildings.
The University has designated the campus a "Walking Campus." All transportation policies state this philosophy. For example, our Motor Vehicle Policy begins with "A Walking Campus - The central philosophy guiding the University's parking policy is our commitment to a walking campus." All of us - students, faculty, staff and visitors - should be confident of the freedom to walk from place to place without interference from cars, motorcycles and other vehicles. We also believe that a walking campus is more consistent with our commitment to the environment.
Therefore, we have established procedures for registering and parking vehicles on campus to assure the safety of students, faculty, staff and visiting drivers and pedestrians on campus. A parking permit gives us all the information we need to help you use University parking areas safely and conveniently. We also work to maintain emergency access to all buildings and areas on campus. We have chosen not to expend funds on additional parking, so consideration is most important in locating a space that meets your needs.
Your cooperation with the regulations will improve the sense of community we share, as well as reduce traffic and parking violations."
