Biking

Riding a bicycle is an excellent way to get to and from campus - it's inexpensive, environmentally friendly, and a great form of exercise. Minnesota has miles of paved bicycle trails. No matter which direction you are coming from, you will be sure to find a bike route to use that gets you to either campus.

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to register their bicycle with Public Safety.

Bike Racks on Campus

There are many bicycle racks on campus, often near the entrance of buildings. If there is not a rack right next to the door you intend to use, look at another entrance to the building.

Resident student bike storage is located in the Tommie North Garage, Morrison Hall Garage and the Frey Residence Hall Garage. A secure bike storage locker is available the Anderson Parking Facility, and is available to all students, faculty and staff. Bike storage lockers are available on a first come, first served basis, and are accessible using a St. Thomas ID card. There is no charge to store bicycles; users will need to supply their own locks.

Unfortunately, bicycle thieves do target college campuses. We recommend the U-lock bicycle lock to secure your bike.

Please be sure to only lock your bike to a bike rack. Bikes are not allowed to be secured to trees, signs, railings or any other object other than a bike rack. Bikes not secured to bike racks may be removed by Public Safety. Read the Bicycle Parking Policies
