Students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to register their bicycles. Registration is free for all students, faculty, and staff (faculty and staff may register their families' bicycles also). Registration serves as a deterrent to theft and can help in the recovery of stolen bicycles. The serial number is recorded and an identifying sticker is placed on your bicycle. You will need to provide the HUPD with the bicycle's serial number, manufacturer, model, and color.
The HUPD offers you two ways to register your bicycle. You may register it in person by bringing it to HUPD headquarters at 1033 Massachusetts Avenue, to 90 Smith Street (Longwood Campus), or to other substations, or by watching for notices of periodic bike registrations conducted at various locations throughout the University. You may also register your bicycle online by clicking here, after which a registration sticker to be attached to your bicycle will be mailed to you.
To reduce the chance that your bike will be stolen, use two locks, each with a different locking mechanism. For more information, please view this guide to locking your bike (PDF)
