Claim your bike!

If your bike is missing, please check with IUB Parking Enforcement at 812-855-9849 to see if it was impounded. If so, the dispatcher will explain how you may recover your bike.

A reminder to all who have bikes on campus: Bikes must be registered and display a Bike permit while 'parked' at a bike rack or in a bike locker. IUB Bike permits cost $10.00 and are valid as long as you own the bike and it remains in operable condition while on the IUB campus.
