Campus Police has received reports of two stolen bikes from the New College campus since April 2. The bikes were unsecured and serial numbers were not available from the owners. We wanted to alert you early so that the community can prevent these thefts from continuing.
One theft was from the area of Z Residence Hall and the other from the area of the Cook Library/ACE building.
On April 1, a suspicious person was reported by a New College student attempting to remove an unsecured bike from the area of Pei Residence Hall East. The person was described as a white male in his 50s, wearing a black shirt, tan pants with a black backpack.
Please keep these safety tips in mind:
The New College Student Alliance has partnered with Campus Police to offer free loaner bike locks to currently enrolled New College students. NCSA provided the funding and Campus Police will handle the logistics of distributing the locks from the Campus Police office.
Eligible students must have a valid New College ID card and be currently enrolled. The locks are available 24/7. The locks must be returned to Campus Police by May 19, 2017.
