Bike Registration

VCU students and employees are encouraged to register bicycles with the VCU Police Department. In doing so, VCU Police maintains a record of your serial number and a photo of your bike, making it easier to recover a stolen bike.

Registration: To register your bike, complete the online bicycle registration.

Decals: You also have the option of picking up a decal to apply to your registered bicycle. This may help deter theft by letting others know you have registered your bike and serial number. If you would like a decal, you can pick one up at VCU Police, 224 E. Broad Street.
