Park Your Bicycle On Campus
Simmons is located in a perfect area for bike riding for pleasure and commuting. Simmons bike racks are located in the following locations on the Academic Campus:
- At entrance to academic quad on Avenue Louis Pasteur
- Adjacent to Park Science Center (East Side)
- North side of One Palace Road building (near Shipping/Receiving area)
- Adjacent to SOM and Academic Building along driveway exiting to Palace Road
On the Residence Campus, bike racks are located in the following locations:
- Adjacent to Bartol Hall
- On patio between Alumnae Hall and Holmes Sports Center
Please see the Bike Rack Map.
Bikes may not be brought into offices or left in hallways, lounges, or other public places because they create a fire hazard. Bikes may not be locked to handrails or fences on either campus. Bikes left in unauthorized places will be considered abandoned and turned over to Public Safety. Storing bikes in student rooms during the academic year is discouraged, and must be agreed upon by all roommates. U-locks are highly recommended for securing all bikes.
Hubway bicycles are available for rent at many locations near both of the Simmons campuses. Please visit their website for pricing and location information http://www.thehubway.com/.
Protect Your Bike Against Theft
It can take just seconds for a thief to steal YOUR bike. Protect yourself with these DOs and DON'Ts from Simmons Public Safety.
- DO keep your bike locked at all times.
- DO lock your bike to a secure object, such as a bike rack, located in a well lit, high traffic area.
- DO use a heavy-duty U-Lock. Lock your bike as close to the rack as possible to prevent thieves from inserting a crowbar. Position your lock with the key mechanism toward the ground.
- DO lock up components, such as quick release wheels, and take small accessories with you.
- DON'T lock your bike to small trees, chain link fences, or other private property. Your bike could be removed without notice.
- DON'T lock your bike to prohibited objects or block pedestrian traffic. Think before you lock.
- DON'T only lock your bike through the frame and front wheel without also locking it to a secure object.
- DON'T lock your bike in the same area every day. Thieves notice patterns.
To help keep your investment safe register your bike through the National Bike Registry. Since 1984, the National Bike Registry (NBR®) has been working with law enforcement to return stolen bikes to their rightful owners. A bike registered with NBR can be identified by police and returned to you instead of being sold at an auction.
