VIU Nanaimo Campus Looking West

Upper Campus Covered Bike Storage


Project Summary

Facilities Services and Campus Development (FSCD) is pleased to announce
the new, upper-campus Covered Bike Storage facility is now complete.  This project is jointly-funded by Vancouver Island University and the Vancouver Island University Student’s Union.

The new facility provides covered parking for approximately 20 bikes; includes power for electric bikes as well as a repair stand, tools & tire pump.

Similar to the Lower Campus Bike Storage area, which was installed in Fall 2011 and located on the North side of the Gymnasium, this initiative was taken to promote alternative transportation, and to accommodate an increased demand for bike storage due to a growing number of cyclist commuters.


Paint and other finishing touches will come in Spring 2013, once weather permits.
