Bringing a bike to campus? Make sure to register with Public Safety.

Bicycles should be registered with CWRU Public Safety to help the department return found or recovered bikes. Registration gets you a sticker to identify the bike along with a FREE U-Lock for undergraduate students. There is no cost for the registration.

How to register

  1. Locate your bike's serial number. Serial numbers are usually a combination of letters and numbers stamped on the bicycle's frame. Most serial numbers are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet.
  2. Submit a bicycle registration online. Please submit the form before attempting to pick up your registration sticker.
  3. Visit the Public Safety Headquarters (1689 E. 115th St.) or go to the Wade or Fribley area offices during normal business hours to pick up your registration sticker and bike lock.
  4. Affix the registration sticker to your bicycle.
