Safety Bulletin

Increased number of bicycle thefts

We have been experiencing an increased number of bicycle thefts on campus

Please remember to lock your bike with a quality U-lock, not a cable or chain lock which can be easily cut.

If you see anyone suspicious around bicycles or at bicycle racks, please contact us without delay.


If you have any information regarding the above bulletin please contact the Campus Community Police at 824-4120 ext.52245, 519-840-5000 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS

Help deter bicycle theft

The University has 2,500 on campus parking spots for bicycles. Most cyclists who lock their bike on campus are very proactive and lock their bicycles to racks. However, many do not realize that the lock they are using could be easily cut. Cable or chain locks are not as effective as they look.  Many of these locks can be cut easily with bolt cutters or tin snips.
