SUNY Cobleskill Bike Room Policy and Storage

SUNY Cobleskill Bike Room Policy and Storage

The use of bicycles, and other personal transportation devices, is widely encouraged, however, it is vital that everyone practice safety when riding and storing devices on campus.  When utilizing a bike on campus, please make sure to lock your device only to designated bike racks, or in the campus Bike Room.  For more information related to authorized use of transportation devices on campus,  the personal transportation policy can be found in the Student Handbook.  

The Bike Room is a resource that is available for all currently enrolled SUNY Cobleskill residential students.  This resource provides a storage option for students so that they do not need to be limited to outdoor storage.  At this time, only nonmotorized devices are eligible for storage.  As per the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control (NYS OFPC), motorized devices are not permitted within residence halls.  The College is working with OFPC to potentially receive authorization for students to store some electronic devices in the future. 

The Bike Room is located at Davis Hall with an exterior entrance located just along Albany Avenue.  The entrance is monitored by camera surveillance and periodic rounds by the University Police.
