Bicycle hubs

Bicycles are reliable, cheap and can help you get around town easily.

Bicycle parking is available at all VU campuses.

Our Footscray Park and Footscray Nicholson campuses also have bicycle hubs with showers, lockers for your clothing and secure bike parking.

Cost of using the hubs

You'll need an access fob to use the bike hub (you can use the same fob at both Footscray Park and Footscray Nicholson campuses). Access fobs and locker keys require separate deposits.

Access fob deposit: $25 (compulsory).

Locker key deposit: $25 (lockers are an option you can choose).

If you already have a bike hub access fob and just want to apply for a locker key, or if you'd like a locker key at both bike hubs, just complete the bike hub application form.

Deposit refunds

You can get your deposit back when you:

  • submit a bike hub deposit refund form and
  • return the access fob and locker key (if you had one) to the Security office or the Facilities Service Desk, Footscray Park Campus, Building K, Level 2.
