McNair Hall Bike Storage

Winter is around the corner and the McNair Hall Association (MHA) is offering students the chance to store their bikes indoors for the coming season. Saturday, Nov. 11, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., MHA will be outside the West McNair Glass Lounge accepting bikes for safekeeping over the winter. This service is offered to students free of charge. The only requirement is that the bike is registered with Public Safety. MHA President Kyler Odle said, “Bike storage is something we offer every year because the bikes that are on the racks cannot be there after the plows start coming in.”  Public Safety will be removing the bike racks all together when snowfall hits. 

A consideration is that you are unable to access or remove your bike from storage until the weather clears and Public Safety determines it is safe to return the racks to campus. 

To register a bike you can visit the Public Safety’s page on the MTU website. There is an online form to fill out. Required information includes contact information and some details about your bike. It shouldn’t take more than five minutes. You will receive a registration decal in the mail at the local address provided in the form. Having your bike registered will help the chances of having it returned should it go missing. There will be a limited number of “day-of” registration forms available, but you are encouraged to complete the process ahead of time. Don’t lose your bike this winter and get it registered so you are eligible to store it in McNair. Visit to register your bike.
