Skating, Skateboard & Bicycling on Campus

York College has specific rules for skating, skateboard and bicycling on campus.

Skateboarders, skaters, and bicyclists may be on campus if:

1. They are a registered student.
2. They are on the path between the bridge and the shopping center.
3. They are in an empty/partially empty parking area and not in close proximity to parked vehicles.
4. They are on the sidewalks between the hours of 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

All individuals operating bicycles, skates, and skateboards on campus are expected to use the equipment in a manner which is appropriate, considerate of others and of College property. Skateboarders, skaters, and bicyclists will also yield the right-of-way to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Individuals are prohibited from skating or skateboarding on the academic mall area and are prohibited from engaging in tricks (sliding, grinding, ramp building, jumps, etc.) anywhere on College grounds which involve any College property (i.e., roadways, stairs, steps, railings, benches, tables, entrances to buildings, etc.). Skateboarders, skaters, and bicyclists are also prohibited from riding or skating on the sidewalks between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

York College will not be held accountable for injuries sustained on campus properties as a result of these actions; however, first aid for injuries should be sought immediately and the incident reported to Campus Safety promptly.

The use of bicycles on College roadways are subject to the same policies and laws regarding the operation of a motorized vehicle under the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code (Title 75).

Use of bicycles, skates, and skateboards inside of campus buildings, including residence halls, is strictly prohibited.

It is recommended that the operator of bicycles, skates, and skateboards wear the appropriate manufactured-suggested safety equipment while using the equipment on campus.

Individuals who use the equipment recklessly or without care of others and College property may be subject to disciplinary action under the Campus judicial system.
