Bike Licensing & Registration

Per city municipal law, bicycles must possess a license (a DMV sticker affixed to your bicycle; issued for free by UCPD) in the City of Berkeley.  Other nearby cities might have similar laws.  Additionally, to use some secure bicycle parking areas on campus and at residence halls, campus building managers might ask that you have a license (UCPD sticker) on your bicycle.

Background Check (Fingerprinting)

Hiring departments, managers, and employees will work with UCPD on this process.

The University maintains a Background Check policy which has been in effect since April 2, 2004. The policy for PPSM-21 Appointments provides details on background check requirements. View the HR Appointment Document at UCOP.
