    It would be best to ask someone at your uni, but generally, I would've thought that campuses would be a safe place. Does your university have designated parking sheds/areas?

    They might have protective alarms or CCTV close by. I would suggest contacting your university, they would be more than willing to help and reassure you

    York is one of the most bike friendly cities in the UK, as long as you are padlocking it, ideally with 2 different locks, you'll be fine.
