New cycle lockers have been installed at Eldon Building, Rees Hall and University House to help students store their bikes more securely.

The Velo-Safe lockers improve bike security and are space efficient as each locker is secured with the user’s padlock. They each accommodate one bike, which is wheeled in backwards with the handlebar twisted to the side. The new lockers also have space to store personal items such as a helmet.
