Bicycle Rack Spring Cleaning

Facilities Services and UH Police Department Partner to Maintain Bicycle Parking Spaces


The University of Houston Facilities Services along with the University of Houston Police Department continue to clean up the bicycle racks in order to maintain an adequate number of bicycle parking spaces on campus and furthermore maintain the overall aesthetics of our campus. This fall a total of 275 bikes were picked up.

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 began in mid-April, with a collection scheduled to begin May 11, 2017 extending until all tagged items are removed.  Collected items will be impounded and will be stored at the University of Houston Police Department.

Facilities Services 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 prior to be released.

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