  • The bicycle garage may only be used for temporary storage of your bike, i.e. over the day or until the next day.
  • No longterm parking is allowed.
  • The bicycle should be placed in a bicycle rack. It is forbidden to park bikes along the wall, in the corridor or by the doors since this might obstruct evacuation routes.
