To sign up for an access key, fill out the Bike Enclosure Key Agreement Form, [pdf] print it out, and turn it in at the General Services center in Student Union, East Wing (9th Street Plaza) Room 1800.

You'll need to provide the SJSU Tower Card number and your bicycle's make, model, color, and serial number (The serial number is usually printed on the bottom of the frame). There is a $15 fee for the access key.
