Ucycle bike hire

From September 2015, the Ucycle Bike Hire Scheme will be run by Enactus, in partnership with the University. The scheme still offers a great deal to those who want to get about on two wheels.

All the information can be found at the new Enactus website

Why cycle to University?

Cycling is a low cost way to get healthier and happier. Cycling five miles takes about 30 minutes, making it one of the quickest ways to get around.

Who can participate?

All students can hire a bike, no matter whether new or existing, undergraduate or postgraduate, full-time or part-time, Home, EU or International.

The scheme is also open to University staff.

Bikes are hired out on a first-come first-served basis, so be quick!

How does the scheme work?

Quality bikes are available for hire for a semester, an academic year, or until August 2016 (PG students and staff only).

All bikes are ready to ride, and come complete with lights, lock, mudguards and rack . 

The University of Nottingham has cycle parking areas to accommodate over 4,650 bicycles, as well as numerous shower facilities for you to freshen up. Use our interactive maps to find out more about facilities on campus for cyclists.

How much will it cost?

The hire fee is £37 for one semester and £55 for an academic year. You will also need to pay a £50 deposit (refundable).

Please go to the Enactus Ucycle website for more information on the deposit and hire process. 


All bike reservations will need to be completed using the Enactus Ucycle website
