UT Southwestern welcomes bicycles and bicycle commuters. Please follow this helpful guide regarding bicycle safety, parking, and more.
Register Your Bike with University Police (It's Free!)
Stolen bikes that are registered with UTSW police are more easily returned to their owner if found, so please register your bike at no cost.
Lock Your Bike
To reduce the chance of bicycle theft, always lock your bike with a U-lock or cable passing through as many parts of your bike as possible to minimize theft of components (like wheels). In the event your bicycle, or a part of your bicycle, is stolen, contact University Police.
- Always wear a helmet.
- General safety tips
- Obey State of Texas bicycle laws.
- Never ride on the Campus Connector roadway. It is closed to cyclists.
