Longwood Bikes! Rental Program

Campus Recreation and the Outdoor Club is excited to provide a free campus bike program, Longwood Bikes! This is our way of offering an affordable and environmentally sustainable form of transportation to students. This program provides an alternative to driving and promote campus community. Campus Recreation has a fleet of approximately 20 cruiser bikes available for rent. All bikes come with a helmet and lock. 

Renting a Bike

  1. Check it out: Visit the Health & Fitness Center during hours of operation and present your valid Lancer Card to check out a bicycle FREE of charge. See the Supervisor on duty and fill out a Rental Agreement form. (Note: Health & Fitness Center hours may vary.)
  2. Take it out: Travel across campus and to and from Lancer Park in style. Park and lock your bike at various campus bike racks. When you’re not riding the bike, we strongly encourage bikes to remain locked up on campus during the rental period. 
  3. Bring it back: You can rent a bike up to 30 days at a time. You must return your bike to the Health & Fitness Center on or before your due date so our staff is able to provide the necessary maintenance to keep the bike in the best possible condition. Late bikes result in a $5 per day fee, until it has been returned. Damage and replacement fees also apply. All bikes will be due back at the end of each semester.
  4. Do it again: If you would like, you may renew your bike rental upon return on your due date. This is dependent on availability.   

Team Building

Campus recreation provides an opportunity for groups and individuals to develop leadership, problem-solving, trust, and communication skills. A trained facilitator accompanies the group through challenging and fun activities focused on group goals, process reflection and communication.

Groups are lead by qualified and well-trained student and staff facilitators.

A minimum of 8eight participants is required for a group. Each group will determine their goals for the experience and the facilitators will ensure that the group's goals are addressed throughout their time frame.


Alternative Breaks

An AB trip is an opportunity for you to engage in community service during your spring break. AB is a great way to explore social issues and discover new things about yourself through education and purposeful action.
