The bike hub was opened in 2009 and has since developed into an exemplary university bike hire and maintenance facility which is open to both staff and students. It offers facilities for bike maintenance, bike hire, route advice and cycle maps as well as discounted locks and lights.

Where is the Bike Hub?

You can find the bike hub on campus under the large paved area at the end of the EC stoner building and Roger Stevens building, at the bottom of the steps.

Drop in Sessions

During usual opening hours, there are free unstructured, self-help maintenance sessions happening which are open to all staff and students to help them to learn the skills to maintain their bikes. Just turn up and use the tools, materials and equipment that you need, with guidance, friendly advice and tips available from the hub staff.

Interested in getting involved? Whether you are completely new to cycling or are a seasoned bike mechanic, the hub team are always looking for new volunteer recruits to help them out. It’s a great way to meet new people and learn some new skills! All you need to do is fill in a very short form as part of your induction to register your details with the hub and outline the skills/ knowledge that you would like to gain from your volunteering and you will be ready to start.
