Registering Your Bike
Nobody plans on having their bike stolen, but in the event that it happens to you, have you planned ahead?
Free Bicycle Registration
If your bike is disappears and is later recovered by the police, the only way they'll be able to get it back to you is if they have some kind of record that connects you to the bike. That's where registration comes in.
This year, for the first time ever at Temple University, students, staff and faculty can register their bicycles online using Campus Safety's Online Bike Registration! Just complete and submit the online form, and then visit one of the following Campus Safety locations:
- Main Headquarters: 1101 W. Montgomery Avenue
- Center Station: Beasely and Pollett Walks
- Morgan Hall Mini-Station: 1600 N. Park Avenue
At one of these locations, an officer will inspect your bike and affix a sticker to the frame that corresponds to your file in the police database. This way, if your bicycle ever turns up without you on it, the police will be able to get in contact with you to return it. The information is also shared with the Philadelphia Police Department, in case your bike surfaces outside of the campus area.
Free U-lock Program
It may sound like this deal can't get any better, but it can! Each semester, Campus Safety provides a voucher for a free U-lock to the first 500 students to register their bicycles with the Temple Police. The U-Lock will be distributed when when you bring your bike to a Campus Safety location for inspection by an officer.
