The University of Newcastle, Australia

Bike hubs

The hubs are undercover, secure bike storage spaces with end of trip facilities and bike repair equipment.

You need to swipe your student card to gain entry to the hubs.

Facilities

Storage racks

Bikes can be stored in one of the two types of bike storage racks available. The racks are allocated on a first-come basis and any locks left on racks without bikes will be removed. Bikes left in the hubs for over a week will be removed.

Lockers

The lockers are individually protected by your chosen four-digit pin. The lockers are programmed to automatically unlock at midnight every night, so be sure to remove your personal items before then.

Showers

Single-occupant unisex shower cubicles with separate change spaces are part of all our hubs. You will need to bring your own toiletries and towels.

Security

CCTV cameras operate outside the hubs, and the facilities are included in regular campus security patrols.
