SJSU Bicycle Enclosures

Protect your bike


SJSU Bicycle Enclosures Park your bike free in any of the six Bicycle Enclosures located throughout the campus. An access key is required to use the enclosures.

Although the Bicycle Enclosures at SJSU provide an additional layer of security, bicycles must be properly secured inside the enclosures. Lock your bicycle with a strong U-lock to the bike rack.

The Bicycle Enclosures and the open racks throughout campus provide short-term bicycle parking for daily commuters and are not intended to provide overnight or long-term storage.
