Help us encourage more sustainable transport choices among the University and wider community! 

Bike Hub Volunteers

What is it?

Volunteers act as a point of contact for staff, student and members of the public accessing the Bike Hub. Working as part of the Bike Hub Team, volunteers welcome and build a rapport with HUB users, provide advice on cycling in the city, hire bikes to staff and students,  as well as providing technical guidance on bicycle maintenance.  Volunteers also provide practical hands on support with helping HUB  users to maintain and repair their bicycles. Volunteers also have the opportunity to support the project planning and delivery of events on campus, residencies and the local community to promote sustainable travel as well as well as events linked to the broader sustainability agenda. Including  National Clean Air Day (21st June).

What are the time commitments?

We would welcome a regular commitment during the Bike hub opening hours of 10am-4pm, Tuesday- Thursday. But we are flexible and can work around your study or other commitments.
