Camosun stands with Indigenous peoples

From Sherri Bell, President

The revealing by the Penelakut Tribe of 160+ undocumented and unmarked graves on the grounds of the former Kuper Island Industrial School and foreshore deepens the pain of all Indigenous peoples.

Ride Your Bike

Whether a bike is your primary mode of transportation to Camosun or you are a novice rider, we want to help make cycling a convenient, safe and efficient option for you to get to Camosun.

Bike parking

Outdoor bike racks

There are hundreds of bike racks throughout our bike-friendly campuses. Please do NOT bring your bike into buildings or lock it to trees, signs, handrails, or other non-bike rack furnishings. Your bike will be removed and impounded as a result.

Always lock your bike carefully and securely! As with all college campuses, bike theft can be a problem. You can dramatically increase the security of your bike by following these simple steps:

  • Always use a U-lock or heavy-gauge chain (cable locks are not enough!)
  • Make sure to lock your bike through a portion of its frame
  • Secure quick-release wheels with your lock or an added cable
  • Remove all detachable accessories including lights, bags, etc.

Secure bike parking

FREE secured bike parking (bike cages) is available at both Lansdowne and Interurban campuses, on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Transportation and Parking at motion@camosun.ca to reserve your spot

Individual bike lockers

Camosun has two secure bike lockers for use at both Lansdowne and Interurban campuses. Lockers provide a personal, covered and waterproof enclosure to store your bicycle and gear.

Lockers are available for Camosun students or employees and are for the storage of bicycles and commute accessories only. Due to the limited number of bike lockers, we offer these via lottery annually in September.

Looking to get on the list? Please email cam-motion@camosun.ca by September 17, 2021.

Prices are as follows:

  • Monthly: $5.00+ GST
  • 4 Months: $20.00+ GST

Fix-it Stations, showers and lockers

Bike fix-it stations

The bike fix-it stations on each campus make it easy for anyone to keep rolling with a basic repair stand, durable air pump, and basic tools. A hanger arm allows for suspending your bicycle from the saddle so your wheels and pedals can spin freely while making adjustments.

Camosun provides a self-serve bicycle fix-it station at central locations at both Interurban (near the basketball court) and Lansdowne (near the covered bike parking area). The stands have all the tools you need to perform basic repairs and maintenance.  

Also, for when you need a little extra assistance, use your smartphone to scan the Quick Read (QR) code on the front of each fix-it stand. A database of repairs pops up with detailed instructions for your fix, so you can get back on the road quickly.

Showers and change rooms

Students and employees have free access to change rooms, showers and day use lockers. Towel service is also available for a small monthly fee ($6 per month or $15 for 3 months).

Lockers

Looking for a secure place to keep your stuff? You can rent lockers at convenient locations throughout campus.  The monthly locker rental fees are:

  • Full size - $8.50 per month
  • Half size - $6.50 per month
  • Third size - $5.50 per month
