Bike cages

In partnership with UBC’s Campus + Community Planning department, the Bike Kitchen offers bike parking cages for UBC students, faculty and staff. Bike parking cages are available for free daytime use, providing covered bike racks within a secure enclosure.

The bike cages are intended for short-term personal bike storage only.
Bikes should not be stored overnight in the bike cages as this increases the chances of break-in.

If you are looking for long-term and/or overnight secure bike storage, please consider applying for a bike locker.
The cages are monitored by Campus Security via CCTVs.

Get Access

All cages are accessible by student or staff cards*. Please allow up to 5 business days for your card to be activated for cage access. Once activated, hold your student or staff card card reader at the bike cage door to access the cage.

Please note, you will not receive a follow up email confirming card has been activated. Your card will remain activated for 1 year and you will not be notified when your card expires.

*If you are a visitor or do not have a staff or student card, please contact our programs office and we will issue you a temporary access card. We require an $8.00 deposit for access cards.
