Cycling Friendly Campus
Help your students to stay active, support their mental health and save on transport costs.
Our Cycling Friendly Campus programme supports colleges and universities promote cycling as a healthy and sustainable travel option for staff and students through a development fund, an award accreditation and an internship programme.
What? Funding of up to £25,000 can be used to install facilities that will make it easier for students and staff to cycle.
Why? By improving facilities, more students will be able to stay healthy, support their wellbeing and save on transport costs.
Who? Colleges and universities looking to promote cycling as a sustainable travel choice can apply to the fund.
How? Read the support documents, complete the application and send it over to us. The fund is currently closed.
The award recognises colleges and universities who are improving their campuses and making it easier and more accessible to cycle.
Colleges and universities across the country have achieved the Cycling Friendly Campus award, and those that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to students cycling have been awarded with distinction.

With funding from Transport Scotland, we place Campus Cycling Officers in colleges and universities to get more students and staff cycling. Their work complements the award, development fund and supports campuses becoming more cycling friendly. The internship programme for 2020-2021 is now underway and closed for applications.
