All bicycles on the Knox campus must be registered at the Campus Safety office (368 S. Prairie Street). In cooperation with the Galesburg Police Department (GPD), Campus Safety utilizes the GPD bicycle registration stickers at no cost to Knox students. The registration information is then retained by both departments so that, in the event the recovery of a lost or stolen bicycle on and off campus, it may be returned to the student owner.
Students are encouraged to utilize the bicycle racks located throughout the campus and to securely lock bicycles when not in use. Bicycles are not permitted in stairwell areas. Likewise, fire code restrictions prohibit locking bicycles to stair rails or other structures that would, in any way, restrict the movement into or out of buildings during an emergency. Facilities Services and/or Campus Safety representatives are required to remove bicycles that have been placed or locked in such a manner as to restrict such movement in campus bulidings.
Bicycles should be removed from campus bicycle racks prior to summer and winter breaks to permit grounds care and building repairs which take place during the break. During that period, bicycles may be stored in campus bicycle storage without cost. The storage process may be coordinated with the Office of Campus Life.
