Cycling Safety

Around 600 cyclists share the University's paths each day with pedestrians, and make the most of a superb cycling environment – safely. If you see any hazards or problems on campus, please contact us.

If you see hazards or problems on the roads or cycleways around Wollongong you may like to report them to Wollongong City Council. You can download the app Snap Send Solve to send a photo and GPS location directly. 

The Roads and Maritime Services' website has a great section for NSW cyclists to "Report a cycle safety hazard". This function has been created to service all of NSW to ensure hazards are reported and directed to the appropriate authority.

The StartLocal website also has a great guide to bike safety.

Bike Parking and End of Trip Facilities

Bike racks span the campuses to ensure cycle parking is convenient, uncongested and safe. Secure parking in Bike Bases is also available on the Wollongong and Innovation Campuses.

Bike Share

Bike Share is  now available at  Bangalay and will be available at other student residences soon.

Bike Maintenance Stations

The Wollongong Campus has two DIY bike repair stations located at the Jugglers Lawn (near the UniBar) and outside Bld 20.  The stations have a bike pump and basic tools to help you keep your bike in shape.
