CSUDH has several resources to help increase bike safety, bike maintenance, and hygiene amenities for students, faculty, and staff. Biking is recommended for those located within a five-mile radius of campus. The environmental benefits of biking instead of driving to campus are accompanied by several physical and mental health benefits such as:

  • Increased heart and lung health
  • Anxiety and stress relief
  • Reduced likelihood of obesity
  • Improved sleep

Bike Policy

Bicycling and other wheeled transport (e.g. scooters, skateboards, rollerskates, etc.) are allowed on the public streetways of the CSUDH campus. However, per the Campus Bike Policy, they are not allowed on the pedestrian walkways and pedestrian sidewalks of the main campus core.

  • Bicylces must be walked when on pedestrian thoroughfares.
  • Bicycles must park in bike racks specifically designed for this purpose. Bicycles locked to trees, etc., may be impounded under the vehicle code.
  • Bicycles are not permitted inside University buildings.

Bike Racks

CSUDH has over 50 bike rack spaces available across 19 bike racks on campus and a private bike storage cage for residents of the University dorms. A U-Lock is recommended to lock your bike to a bike rack at the same time as attaching a chain between the front tire and around the body of your bike for maximum security.

Bike Repair Station

Funded by a 2023 Toro Green Initiative Fund (T.G.I.F.) project, the self-operated bike repair station contains free tools for bike maintenance.

Located on the East Walkway, across from LSU!

Showers and Hygiene Concerns

There are two showers available to CSUDH students, staff, and faculty bicyclists on campus:

  • I&I Building, room 1202
  • Science & Innovation Building, room 308B

Both showers require key access which can be applied for through a key request through Facilities Services.

The Office of Sustainability creates eco-friendly deodorants and Campus Urban Farm soaps that are available for free to in-need students in the Toro Food Pantry, located in the Library, room 2514.
