Do uni rooms have room for a bicycle?Watch

It will really depend on the university and the type of accommodation. However, at Lancaster, we have bike sheds outside the accommodation blocks, which have locks on them, and there are bike racks all over campus. My room last year would have had room for a bike, but it wouldn't have been appropriate to put it there as there are special places provided!
There is sometimes quite a big cycling community at university (though dependent on the uni), so it might be worth having a look specifically at the university you're interested in and seeing if there is anyone on social media who can give you help with where to put your bike at that university.

There are usually bike sheds for bikes (and big warnings about not leaving them locked anywhere else).
No not really, where i lived people used to tie their bikes to the rails by the rubbish bins. I had a housemate who hammered in some joists into the wooden beams of his ceiling and suspended his bike there but i wouldnt really recommend that
Hiya! It will really differ to each university but at Portsmouth all halls have bicycle storage such as outside Unite Student properties there are bike racks which students could use with a chain to secure their bikes. However, my house mate decided to put his bike in his room. It will depend on the size of your room when you get to uni but there will be lots of safe options available for you as you won't be alone in taking your bike to uni. In Portsmouth there are more than 1,500 cycle hoops and racks across the campus and also cycle cages available where you can show your student ID to enter and store your bike.
