Bicycle Rack Spring Cleaning

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

bicycle rack cleaningThe 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 will begin Monday, February 13, 2023 with a collection scheduled to begin Monday, March 13, 2023, 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 60 days, if not registered. If the bike is registered, it is a minimum of 90 days. Then at the discretion of UHPD, they will be donated or disposed of.

Before releasing an impounded bicycle, the prospective owner will be required to provide proof of ownership to the UH Police Department. Registering the bicycle with UH Parking & Transportation Services will also be required and is completely free.

If you have any questions about the bicycle abatement initiative, you may contact your Building Coordinator before removal. After removal, please contact the Office of the Records Division at the UHPD (713-743-3333).
