Bicycle Parking on Campus

Bicycle Parking on Campus

Harvard works to improve bicycle access, mobility, and safety around campus. Through these efforts, Harvard has installed thousands of bike parking spaces including covered and secure locations. Racks are primarily installed and maintained by building managers. 

For up to date bike parking locations and recommended routes refer to Harvard's downloadable or interactive online map.


Unless otherwise noted, campus racks are for short term bicycle parking only, defined as three or less consecutive days. Bicycles parked on racks for prolonged periods, or bicycles showing signs of abandonment, are subject to removal. 

Bicycle parking on all Harvard bike racks require a Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) sticker.

If your bicycle is missing please contact HUPD: 617.495.1215

Covered Locations

Covered locations are only for short term bicycle parking and are available on a first come, first served basis.
