The University is also committed to promoting sustainable transport and organises a bike loan system for students on the campuses.
The bike hire service provided by the University of Orléans has been a victim of its own success and will therefore be suspended from 12 October 2022.
However, we suggest that you put yourself on the waiting list so that you can be notified as soon as a bike becomes available. To do so, please fill in the form below after reading the information provided.
If you feel like cycling, the University offers you the opportunity to borrow a city bike (see photo on the left) with its accessories: anti-theft device, luggage rack, hazard spacer, retro-reflectors. You can obtain a bike by making a deposit of 50€ which will be cashed and returned upon return of the bike. Bikes can be borrowed from 5 September for a semester or for the whole university year, within the limit of the number of bikes available.
All students registered at the UO can benefit from this loan. This scheme is financed by the CVEC.
Students of the Bourges IUT (Institute of Technology) are invited to contact their academic division directly at: 02.48.23.80.80
Do not hesitate to register!
Procedure for borrowing a bicycle:
- From 9 September: fill out the form below by choosing 2 possible time slots to collect the bike.
- After confirming via email, come at the time slot set to collect the bike with the following documents:
- The copy of your civil liability insurance;
- Your student card.
Caution: If one document is missing, we will not be able to give you the bike!
Collecting the bike and its accessories will take between 10 and 20 minutes with the reminder of your obligations and of the main conditions of use, a trial of the bike to check its working status, and the signature of the loan contract in 2 copies. The contract will be pre-completed and printed by the University.
The meeting point to collect/return the bike is on the side of the science lecture halls, opposite the tram (in front of the red door with a sign for bike repairs).
If you wish to cancel your loan project or if you cannot attend the collecting appointment, please inform the University services immediately by email at: email@example.com, otherwise your bike reservation will not be maintained.
If you are already equipped ith a personal bike, please note that the University also regularly offers bike repair workshops!
When you wish to return your bike, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to schedule a return appointment (please contact us at least 2 weeks before the date you want).
