Police Department


Bicycle Registration

Bicycle registration is mandatory for all faculty, staff, and students who ride a bicycle on UCI campus. By registering your bicycle, you will assist the UCI Police Department in identifying your bike if it is lost, stolen, recovered, or impounded. At no cost to you, bicycles can be registered at two convenient campus locations and a tamper-resistant decal will be placed on your bicycle for identification.

  1. Transportation & Distribution Services - second floor of the Public Services Building
  2. UCI Guest and Event Services office - Student Center Parking Structure

If you received a bicycle citation, please visit bike.uci.edu for more details.

      If you leave your bike parked for an extended period of time, you can be contacted before the bike is sent to salvage.
    3. Recovery If Stolen
      If your bike is lost or stolen, registration could help you get your bike back.
    4. Theft Deterrent
      Registration might deter thieves from attempting to steal your bike.
