$45 Long Term Student Rentals

Limited to Current UAF Students. For Staff/Faculty/Alumni, Check the Short Term and Buy-In Sections Below.

The majority of our fleet is dedicated to keeping students on bikes for a limited cost. We loan them out for 3 months at a time, but require that you come in every 4 weeks for a checkup; we'll show you how to tune up your bike. If you are interested in one of these bikes, here's what you need to do:

  • Come in during our office hours any Wednesday. Make sure to get there early as bikes are rented on a first come first serve basis. 
  • Bring your polar express card and helmet; if you don't own a helmet you can buy one for $35.
  • $45 rental fee (through credit, debit, check, or cash)

Bikes will not be held for people who do not have all the required materials (polar express card, helmet and a way of paying the rental fee).


$100 Buy-In Option for UAF Affiliates

Limited to UAF Staff, Alumni, Faculty and Family Members

UAF affiliates may pay an annual user fee of $100 to have access to all program services, including long-term rentals. After this $100 fee they still pay normal user fees (e.g. the $30 fee for long-term checkout). Students do not fall under this option because they have already paid the SIREN fee as part of their tuition.


Bike Locker Rentals

Limited to UAF Students, Staff and Faculty

Bicycle lockers are available in two locations: West Ridge near the IARC Building, and on lower campus next to the Gruening Building.

Rental rates are $10/calendar month or $100/year.

A $25 user fee will be charged to all non UAF students who use the shop services for their personal bikes.
