Does the institution have indoor and secure bike storage, shower facilities, and lockers for bicycle commuters in at least one building?:

A brief description of the facilities:

Belmont Hall (within the stadium) and Anna Hiss Gym have showers that are free to all UT ID card holders. Lockers are free with a Recreation Sports membership ($25/month for staff, free for students). There are several bike racks protected by open-air garages.

Indoor bike storage is generally considered unnecessary because the weather in Austin, TX is mild. There is a documented bike theft problem on campus, which Parking & Transportation services counteracts with bike registration and posted guidelines on securing bikes. Also, the sheer volume of bikes (thousands) on campus make indoor bike storage impractical.
