Bicycle roundup has begun on University Park campus

The Penn State Parking Office has announced that the annual bicycle round up will begin on Monday, June 4. Unregistered bicycles that have been previously tagged and recorded by parking enforcement will be considered to be abandoned. If there is a lock on the bicycle and it is in the same location where it was tagged, the lock will be removed and the bicycle will be confiscated. Only bicycles that do not have a valid bicycle permit and are on university property will be affected.

The Parking Office will hold all confiscated bicycles for 90 days and will attempt to notify the bicycle owner to retrieve the bicycle. Bicycles that are not claimed by the owner will be signed over to Lion Surplus for sale and auction. In addition, any bicycle that is claimed will have to be registered (with a permit) before it is returned to the owner.

Penn State Parking will not reimburse anyone for a lock that has been cut. Those who have questions should contact Jean Harris at 814-863-7021 or
