Bicycle Rack Spring Cleaning

Facilities/Construction Management and UH Police Department Partner to Maintain Bicycle Parking Spaces

The University of Houston Facilities/Construction Management and the University of Houston Police Department continue to clean up the bicycle racks to maintain an adequate number of bicycle parking spaces on campus and maintain the overall aesthetics of our campus. 

Bicycles and other items secured to bicycle racks or other objects on campus, that are abandoned, or appear to be abandoned, will be tagged (with a colored tag). Tagging began Monday, April 12, 2021, with a collection scheduled to begin Monday, June 3, 2021, extending until all tagged items are removed.  Collected items will be impounded and will be stored at the University of Houston Police Department.

Facilities/Construction Management and UH Police Department is not responsible for the cost of locks, chains, other security devices, or any other item that may be damaged or destroyed as a result of removing any items and neither department have responsibility or liability to replace or make compensation for such items.

All bikes will be impounded and stored at UHPD and stored for a minimum of 30 days, then at the discretion of UHPD donated or disposed.

Before releasing an impounded bicycle, the prospective owner will be required to provide proof of ownership and to register your bicycle with the University of Houston Police Department before being released.

Bicycle registration is now being coordinated through UH Parking & Transportation and is completely free.

If you have any questions about the bicycle abatement initiative, you may contact UH Facilities before removal or after removal of the Records Division at the UHPD (713-743-3333).
