Bicycle parking and storage

CycleSmart Centres (Secure Parking)

La Trobe University has two CycleSmart Centres on the Melbourne Campus. These facilities offer more secure parking than the regular bike hoops across the campus; through the use of card access systems.

  • CycleSmart Centre North (east of the RL Reid Building)
  • CycleSmart Centre South (east of the Humanities 3 building)

See the Cycling Amenities Map for the exact locations. You can request access to both facilities by filling out the Secure Bike Storage Access Request Form. Please allow up to 24 hours for processing.
