If you cycle to work, you can use the University’s bicycle racks or lockable bicycle sheds; to use a lockable shed, however, you need a bicycle pass. At some locations you can also borrow a staff bicycle.
Bicycle racks are available on the sites of the buildings. You can park your bicycle in these, or use a lockable bicycle shed. The sheds are only for the use of University staff, and you need to have a bicycle pass. The bicycle pass will be added to your LU Card.
- If you already have a LU Card, simply apply for the bicycle pass at your local Service Desk and it will be added to your LU Card.
- If you do not have a LU Card yet, you must first apply for this.
For safety reasons, you are only permitted to park bicycles in bicycle racks. You may never park your bicycle on the footpath, at entrances to buildings or inside buildings. The University is not liable for theft of or damage to bicycles.
At some locations you can borrow a staff bicycle. If you need a staff bicycle, you can collect a bicycle key at the reception. Staff bicycles cannot be reserved in advance and must be returned on the same day.
There are a number of unguarded bicycle parking areas in the vicinity of Faculty of Humanities buildings. Faculty staff can also make use of the three available bicycle sheds. These are located in the cellar of the Lipsius Building (entrance via Paterstraate), in front of the Matthias de Vrieshof building and in front of the P.N. van Eyckhof and Van Wijkplaats buildings. You can open the door of the bicycle shed using your office key.
