All student bicycles must be marked with a unique personal number which will be allocated by the Porters. This is not only to satisfy University Regulations (Proctors may issue warnings or on-the-spot fines for failure to comply) but also to maximise the chance of the bike’s return should it be stolen.
Unregistered bikes are not covered by college insurance in the event of theft. Information as to accommodation for bicycles in the College should be obtained from the Head Porter.
Cycling is not permitted in College and no bicycle may be brought into the Quadrangle, Howard Court, or Kenny Court, or stored in staircases or College houses.
An exception to this is that graduates may wheel their bicycles through the Quadrangle if they live in the Singer Building. Fellows may cycle their bicycles in the Quadrangle.
Owing to traffic problems in Cambridge, the University and Colleges are under an obligation to the civic authorities to restrict the use of motor vehicles by junior members (undergraduates and graduates).
Consequently, it is a University offence for a junior member to keep, hire or drive a car in Cambridge during Term without permission. A fine of £175 can be imposed by the University Motor Proctor on any offender.
Permission is only granted in exceptional circumstances. Such permission should be sought by completing a car parking application form. The form must be counter-signed by the student’s Tutor and permission can only be granted when an authorised parking space is available.
The same parking application form must be completed when permission is sought to park a motor vehicle in College. Student parking is very limited in the College and only special cases are granted permission. A parking badge is required if a vehicle is to be parked in College, for which there is a charge per Term or part Term (see Fees and Charges) and over the summer.
No motor vehicles are allowed in the Main Court or in Kenny Court. If space allows, parents of junior members are allowed to park in College when visiting, and to do so they will need to report to the Porters’ Lodge.
In addition, there are a limited number of spaces, which can be pre-booked through the Porters’ Lodge, for all other visitors.
