All bicycles ridden or parked on the Colorado State University campus must be registered with the CSU Police Department. Exceptions to the registration will be made for bicyclists who are visitors to campus. A registration decal, known as a CSU Bicycle License, must be placed on the bicycle and is valid for as long as the decal numbers are readable.
Complete the bicycle registration form, print it out and bring it into the BEEP Office. Forms are also available at the BEEP Office at the CSU PD. The serial number of the bicycle is required and must be recorded. The serial number is usually found in one of three places on your bicycle. Please refer to the image to the right to find the most common locations. The image also shows you where to affix your CSU Bicycle License. If the bicycle does not have a serial number, it is the responsibility of the registrant to select a unique number and have it inscribed on the frame. The CSU PD does offer a free inscribing service.
Transfer of Ownership
If ownership of a registered bicycle changes, the owner must notify CSU PD. Registrations are not transferable and the new owner must register the bicycle. The new owner must ensure that the old Bicycle License has been removed when possession of the bicycle has changed. Only one CSU Bicycle License can be affixed to any bicycle at one time. If a bicycle is stolen, lost, or destroyed, the owner should notify the CSU PD as soon as possible so that a notation can be made on the registration form and a police report can filed, if necessary.
The license decal is supplied with an adhesive backing and is to be affixed to the main frame on the down tube of the bicycle (see the above picture). Make sure the area is wiped clean before placing the license on the frame. The license is to be affixed so that it is clearly visible.
