York University encourages and supports cycling as a sustainable transportation alternative.

Secured Bike Enclosures

York University’s Keele Campus offers two (2) secured bike enclosures for use by community members.  They are conveniently located at either end of the campus, one is in the Arboretum Lane Parking Garage, the other enclosure is in the Student Services Parking Garage.

These enclosures offer protection against theft, vandalism, and inclement weather.  They are monitored 24/7 by CCTV and are only accessible to community members that are registered for use and have key access.

They are located on street level just inside the main entrances to each garage for easy access. There is a fee of $20 + applicable taxes per year (May 1 - April 30) to use these bike enclosures. This fee will not be pro-rated and goes towards supporting improvements and upkeep.

Please contact the Parking Office for additional information.

Completed applications must be submitted via email to parking@yorku.ca.  A member of the Parking Services team will contact you to complete the application process and arrange for key pick up.

Bike Racks

All main buildings on campus are equipped with bicycle racks where bikes can be securely locked.
