Use and supervision

  • Parking your bike/mopeds/scooters in the bicycle parking facilities is always at your own risk. The UvA cannot be held liable for damage, loss or theft of personal property in a bicycle parking facility.
  • Indoor bicycle parking facilities are kept accessible and clean.
  • When peak periods are expected (e.g. at the start of the academic year), bike coaches monitor the use of the bicycle parking facilities.
  • At least once a year, all derelict bikes and those judged to be abandoned are removed. The cost of bike locks will not be compensated. The bikes will be handed over to the municipal bike depot where, for a fee, you can pick up the bike that has been removed.
  • Bike coaches are present on regular working days at a number of sites to ensure bikes/mopeds/scooters are parked correctly.
