Snyder Memorial 1000
The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) located in UT’s Center for International Studies and Programs has piloted a bicycle loan program called Rocket ReCycle. The results have been overwhelming and the program is a huge success.
Peter Thomas, recognized the needs of international students who are here for a limited period and developed this program to help students with basic transportation. The bicycle loan program gives international students reliable transportation to class, more mobility and a sense of freedom to buy groceries, run errands, go to restaurants, and travel around town.
How to register for a bicycle:
International students can register for Rocket ReCycle by stopping in
the Office of International Student and Scholar Services, Snyder Memorial room 1000.
Bikes will be loaned on a first-come-first-serve basis.
International students will be able to register for the bicycle loan program by completing a registration form along with a $25 or $50 deposit depending on the age of the bicycle.
Students will be responsible for bike upkeep and maintenance.
Students must also view two bicycle safety videos in the office and purchase a good bicycle lock to participate in the loan program.
The deposit will be fully refunded upon the return of the bike.
Please ask for George Bradford who will assist you with the rental process.

How to donate a bicycle to Rocket ReCycle:
The UT police department kicked off the loan program by donating bicycles that were left unclaimed at the end of the academic year 2012. The need for bicycles continues to increase, so OISSS is looking for donations to the program of used bicycles in good working condition.
Interested donors please contact Peter Thomas at 419.530.4229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
