We have lots of facilities at BU for both students and staff who cycle to uni, including secure storage compounds in various places on campus and at halls of residence around Bournemouth.

The secure cycle shelters are for daily use only and not for regular overnight or prolonged storage Bikes left in the shelters for prolonged periods are at risk of removal.
