Bike Registration Program

The Bike Registration Program was developed to provide the community with a vital crime prevention tool.

The benefits of bike registration are that it can effectively assist in reducing theft on campus for the following reasons:

* Registered bikes are difficult to sell and therefore are less likely to be stolen.

* Registered bikes contribute to a higher rate of conviction for those apprehended with it in their possession.

* Registered bikes make it easier for law enforcement officials to return it to the rightful owner if it is lost or stolen.


How to Register Your Bike

Students, employees and members of the GW community should bring their bicycles and proof of purchase to Rome Hall 101 where a trained bike patrol officer will engrave the National Bike Registry (NBR) registration number on the bottom of the down tube. A NBR sticker and a George Washington University registration sticker will then be applied to the bike. The officer will fill out the registration form and give the individual a copy of that form as well as the Payer's Receipt. These records should be kept in a safe place for future reference. The cost of this service is $10.00, payable by personal check, cashier’s check, or money order.  Cash and GWorld Cards are not accepted.

If a bike is stolen, the individual should contact GWPD immediately to file a theft report.
