Bike Cages


In partnership with UBC’s Campus + Community Planning department, the Bike Co-op offers secure parking bike parking cages for UBC students, faculty and staff.
The secure parking bike cages are intended for short-term personal bike storage only. Bikes must not be stored overnight in the bike cages; this increases the chances of break-ins​. ​If you are looking for long-term and/or overnight secure bike storage, please consider applying for a bike locker.


Important Notice

The bike cages are currently undergoing a security access restructure. If you register with this form, your student/staff card will be activated within 48 hours. Existing user codes will continue to work until the key pads are removed.
If you are a new user requiring access to the following cages, please fill out the old form:

  • Allard Hall (Law Building – 1822 East Mall)
  • Aquatic Ecosystems Research Library (AERL; 2202 Main Mall)
  • Chemistry Building
  • Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CEME)
  • Totem Field (2613 West Mall)

If you do not have access to a student or staff card, you will have to visit the co-op office and purchase an access card.

To contact the co-op or arrange to come in, email info(at)bikecoop.ca or phone the office at 604-822-2453.
