New Bicycle Parking Rules in Effect

In an effort to more effectively accommodate the increase of bicycles at the University, bicycle corral parking is being created throughout the campus. Corrals reduce the potential for bicycle/pedestrian conflicts on the walks, improve security by providing video monitoring of corral locations, and enhance building access/circulation by removing the ad hoc placement of racks that has occurred over time. A new corral was recently completed in the yard of Blockley Hall across from Lot #44, and new corrals are being developed on Hamilton Walk and 36 Street. When the work is completed, bicycle parking near the Perelman School of Medicine will increase from 450 to 658.

Bicycles may be parked at the following nearby locations:

  • South of Blockley Hall on Curie Boulevard
  • North of Blockley Hall on Guardian Drive
  • Stemmler Hall on Hamilton Walk
  • Johnson Pavilion entrance plaza on Hamilton Walk
  • Hamilton Walk and 38th  Street
  • 36th  and Spruce Streets

Bicycles are restricted from HUP, the Perelman Center or the Smilow Center for Translational Research and are discouraged from being brought into University facilities. See a campus plan showing bicycle corral locations and capacities at .  For questions or concerns, please contact Bruce Kasprzyk at or (215) 898-8760.
