Showers & Lockers
On the east side campus, the Commuter Student Resource Center (CSRC) offers free locker rentals (rentals by the semester), showers, and a refrigerator where you can store your lunch. The Student Recreation Facility (SRF), also on the east side, is UIC’s state-of-the-art fitness center with showers, towel service, and free daily locker usage. If you prefer the west side, the Sport & Fitness Center (SFC) also offers showers, towel service and free daily locker usage. Both SRF and SFC offer the ability to rent a semi-permanent locker (semester-long use) for a small fee.
Bike Air Pumps
If you find yourself with low tire pressure, stop by one of the following locations to borrow a bike pump. Generally, you need to talk to staff at a location and ask for the air pump and leave your UIC ID until you return the pump.
Bike Racks & Indoor Parking
As of 2012, unfortunately, there are currently no official non-residential locations to park a bike indoors on campus… yet (stay tuned).
There are over 800 outdoor bike racks at UIC. You can be sure you can find a place close to your class to park your bike. Please visit our Safety & Security page for more information on how to properly lock your bike to a rack.
