Street Address

MSU Bikes Service Center
434 Farm Lane
Bessey Hall, Room B10
East Lansing, MI 48824

Location & Directions

We are located in the old canoe shelter on the north river trail 300 feet north-west of the Farm Lane Bridge.  Our only entrance faces the river and cannot be accessed from inside Bessey Hall.

Here is a link to our Center on Google maps.

Our Center is fully-accessible with a ramp on the east side of our entrance; we recommend visiting our Center via the river trail from the west as there is a steep hill to the east from Farm Ln. which unfortunately is not currently ADA compliant.

MSU’s Bike-Friendly /Green Transportation Options:

The latest version of our brochure can be viewed in the slideshow below.  It features MSU’s updated Green Transportation Map of campus (JPEG) that shows all the roads with bike lanes, other bike-friendly related facilities as well as where you can charge an electric car, find the Capital Area Multi-modal Gateway (train and bus station) and solar-powered car ports on campus.


Parking Information

We have plenty of bike parking in front of our Center and bikes are always welcome inside!  For those coming by motor vehicle: the Bessey Hall loading dock area (on the west-facing side of the building) can be used for up to 10 minutes for quick drop-offs and pick-ups. Anything over 10 minutes is a violation of the MSU Ordinance.  Again, only the loading zone may be used; other parking spaces within the lot cannot be used.  For longer visits the closest visitor parking meters are in the parking area on the loop in front of the Administration Building and on the east side of Erickson Hall.  More information about visitor car parking on campus is here.
