Bike Lockers

Located throughout campus, these spacious lockers will provide safety and protection for your bicycle and bike gear. Most standard size bikes will fit, although some tandem bikes or recumbent bikes may not fit into the lockers. 

Please note: due to safety considerations, electric bikes are permitted in the bike shelters (and lockers) if their battery is UL Certified. Spot checks for compliance are done by Western Fire Safety. If you have any questions about checking your bike for UL Certification, reach out to Parking staff at

You can email to indicate you would like to be added to the waitlist. Being on the list will not guarantee space will become available for you to obtain a Bike Locker.

Along with the individual bike lockers, Western also offers permits for two secured bike shelters.
