What is the Bike Scheme?

The University of Bolton has purchased 1,000 bicycles for students to use during their studies at the University. The scheme is open to all full-time and part-time students.

We want all of our students to feel safe and comfortable when commuting to campus or just going about a daily routine in and around the area. We know that some of you will be apprehensive about using public transport so you can do one of the following things. You can borrow a bicycle from the University for just a £50.00 deposit, and this will be returned at the end of the semester. Alternatively, you can purchase a bike for £75, and this remains yours at the end of the academic year. (Only one purchase per student available).

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

Cycling has added health benefits for students, as well as helping to protect the environment; it will help you keep in touch with your friends and get you where you need to be in-between classes.

More details of eligibility and how to register for the University Bicycle Scheme are available here.

At the University of Bolton we understand our students have different requirements and pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide. Being voted No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide, North West) is a testament to our approach; welcome to #UniAsItShouldBe.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
