Bringing a bike to campus?

Contributed by Malorie Kerry on 09/19/2016 

All bicycles on campus must be registered. Bicycle registration is free.  Individual bicycles only need to be registered once.  Registration helps the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management to identify owners of lost, stolen or impounded bicycles and to disseminate safety information. Bicycle registration also allows Ithaca College to plan more accurately for improved bicycle parking and bicycle safety. If you see a bike you believe to be abandoned and/or is causing a safety hazard please contact our office at 274-3756. To register your bicycle, please go to

Applications are now open for all IC students who are interested in spending a weekend away from campus exploring issues of oppression, privilege, and identity. Join us at the15th annual Cross-Cultural Leadership Retreat (CCLR) for the opportunity to learn and engage in meaningful discussions.
