Commuting and Parking

Bike Lockers

Bike lockers are available for rent at the Notre Dame Campus. Seventeen bike locker units are located in high traffic locations around campus. Each unit holds two lockers (one of each end), totaling 34 bike lockers on campus. These lockers are ideal for regular bike commuters who want a place to lock their bike, bag and helmet in a secure, outdoor storage unit that’s protected from the elements.

Rental Details

  • Lockers are $35 for a 10-month rental period and a Bike Locker Usage Agreement will need to be signed at the Campus Store (Notre Dame Campus).

Get Destination Ideas With Our Bike Locker Designs

In addition to improving end-of-trip facilities for cyclists, we wanted to give these big grey boxes (formerly known as our herd of elephants) a splashy makeover to animate our campus. We came up with the idea of showcasing prominent Winnipeg landmarks and the distance to travel to them by bike from campus. Our talented designer Marc executed this vision perfectly. We’re particularly fond of the FortWhyte Alive! design… What’s your fave? We still have some more lockers to complete. 

These bike lockers are part of RRC Polytech’s Transportation Plan. We’re committed to continuing to provide flexible, equitable and sustainable commuting options for students, staff and faculty.

RRC Polytech campuses are located on the lands of Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Anishininew, Dakota, and Dené, and the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.

We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.
