Getting Around Campus Another option for secure storage is to rent a bike locker from Parking and Transportation Services at 612-626-PARK. See locker locations on the campus biking map at z.umn.edu/ubike. If you don’t own a bike, try Nice Ride’s green bicycles that can be checked out from a public kiosk on or off campus and returned to any other Nice Ride kiosk. More information: niceridemn.com

Mopeds on campus Moped parking is free at designated locations, but you must pick up a permit sticker from the University Police on the first floor of the Transportation & Safety Building on Washington Avenue. Moped designated parking locations are listed at www.umn.edu/pts. Citations or fines are given when mopeds are parked at bike racks or in motorcycle contract areas. Mopeds are prohibited on campus sidewalks.

Walking—and safety

HOW TO AVOID EVENT PARKING RATES:

Do you need an idea of how manageable it is to walk between classes (or your residence hall and a class) in a relatively short amount of time? Check out some walking times between buildings at z.umn.edu/uwalk.

On rainy or snowy days, the Gopher Way can keep you warm and dry. It’s a signed route that connects many buildings on campus by tunnels and skyways. Warning: the path can change to different floors within the same building or pass through uncommon areas. It’s always a good idea to allow for a little extra time when using the Gopher Way.

If you walk around campus alone, especially after dark, it is important to use the U of M Police Department’s free Security Monitor Escort Service. All you need to do is call 612-624-WALK or 4-WALK from any campus phone. See the campus vicinity boundaries here: www.umn.edu/police/escort.html. The Gopher Chauffeur is a free transportation service that operates from 10:00 p.m. – 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The service is open to all U of M students. Gopher Chauffeur drivers, navigators, and dispatchers are hired by Boynton Health Service. Call 612-388-6911 30 minutes before your pick-up time. The University Avenue Circulator bus runs between 3rd Avenue and 23rd Avenue, up and down University Avenue and 4th St. SE. on weekends until 2:00 a.m. See details here: z.umn.edu/circulators. This Circulator—along with the Gopher Chauffeur and 624-WALK—gives students multiple options to get home safely.
