Registering Your Bicycle

Parking and Transportation provides a voluntary FREE registration program to all students, faculty, staff, and the general public. Registration offers the following advantages:

  • Registration serves as a deterrent to theft.
  • Registration assists in the identification of lost or stolen bicycles.
  • Unregistered bicycles found in violation of University parking regulations will be immobilized or impounded.
  • Allows the University to better plan for improved bicycle parking and operation on campus.

1.  You can register at Parking Services or online. An ownership transfer form is available if you have sold your registered bicycle.

Required information:

Owner's name, address and University ID number (if applicable)

Bicycle description - Make, Model, Color

Manufacturer's identification number (usually located on the bottom side of the bike frame)

2.  Once registered, you will receive a registration decal which must be permanently and visibly affixed to the bicycle's down or seat tube. The University also accepts valid and current Iowa City and Coralville registration decals if the decals are affixed and visible on the bicycles.

3.  If you sell or give your bicycle to someone, report it immediately to Parking Services so you are not held liable for any violations issued to the bicycle. Fill out the Bicycle Report of Transfer form located on the reverse side of your bicycle registration receipt and return it to our office. If you do not have the registration receipt, the transfer forms are available at Parking Services or here is the Bicycle Report of Transfer form. You can either submit online or print out the form, complete the information and return it to Parking Services.
