Individual Bike Lockers

For greater bicycle security, Transport Systems provides a number of individual lockers which are available for hire. These lockers allow customers to store their bicycle (and some additional items, including helmets, clothes etc) in an area which can only be accessed by key.

Level 2, S Block 4
Kelvin Grove Level 1, F Block 9 $200.00 $200.00
Level 1, Q Block 8 $52.00 N/A
All prices include GST.

Please Note: The refundable Key Deposit is retained by Transport Systems but will be returned to the customer at the end of the rental period once the locker key is returned. If a key is lost/damaged, the deposit will be forfeited.

Lockers are hired on a first-come, first served basis. Customers who have hired a locker will be given the first opportunity to re-hire the same locker for the following year.

Please contact the Transport Systems Office should you wish to enquire about or apply for an individual bicycle locker.

 

Bicycle Security

Bicycles can be very expensive items and unfortunately are often targeted by offenders looking for a quick and easy buck.

Transport Systems strongly recommends that customers secure their bicycle to the rack using a solid "D Lock" (shown on the left).

QUT cannot take responsibility for any bicycle parked at the University; parking is at the customer's own risk.

QUT Security provide additional hints and tips for using bicycles on campus. Additionally, detailed information on bicycle security can be found on the Department of Transport and Main Roads website.
