We're looking forward to seeing you and your friends at the parade, tailgate, football game, and other events!
Modern Ride Sharing Program Available
The university has upgraded its pen-and-paper ride board with a modern system through a partnership with Zimride. Zimride uses the university's secure login system so only authorized, registered students can take advantage of the resource. Zimride has a proven track record for facilitating rides in a way that is safe and convenient for both drivers and passengers.
Students can search for rides or post rides. Any time a user adds a ride of their own or are added to another user's ride it will be placed on the website for easy reference.
Protect Bicycles During Winter
The winter season is approaching and that means snow! Many students put their bicycles into "hibernation" during the winter by leaving them locked outside. In some areas where bike racks are close to pathways, bicycles have been damaged by snow removal. Leaving a bicycle in the weather for a prolonged period of time can rust and damage components.

The university has invested in indoor bicycle storage to help protect the families investment. Secure storage facilities are available in each parking garage (Knoles, San Francisco, and Mountain View). These enclosures provide bicycle racks and small personal lockers for bicycle gear and related items.
Space is limited so encourage your student to reserve his/her space TODAY!
Students can reserve their spot by printing out and completing the rental form and bringing it to the parking office.
A space in an enclosure may be rented for $15 for one semester or $40 for the year.
