If you are parking your bicycle or electric or motor powered vehicle (EMPV) on campus for any amount of time, we strongly suggest you register your device. Should you ever need any assistance with your bike or EMPV (e.g. lock maintenance, repairs, instruction, etc.) we will only be able to help you if your device is registered or if you can provide the serial number.

How to Register

Bring your bicycle or EMPV to the Purdue University Police Department located at Terry House, 205 S. Martin Jischke Drive, and ask about bike/EMPV registration. 

You can also find opportunities to register your bicycle or EMPV at a variety of events like the Purdue Farmer’s Market throughout the year. Contact for additional information about registration.

Tips for Registering Your Bike/EMPV

  • You MUST bring your bicycle or EMPV with you to register.
  • If you have a smartphone, download the “529 Garage” app prior to coming to register your device. Bring your phone with you.
  • Your bicycle or EMPV is NOT registered until we have confirmed your information on your bicycle and a sticker has been placed on your device.
