SGA Bike Library

On-Campus Bike Rental at the University of Massachusetts Amherst

For questions about bike rental availability, please email the Chief of Staff at 

The UMass Amherst Bike Library rental program provides free bicycles to students, faculty, and staff. The program is operated by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Physical Plant and was made possible through a donation from the class of 2010. In Fall 2018, the SGA partnered with UMass Amherst Bike Coop to make sure that everyone who rented received a tune-up for their bike (paid by the SGA).
