The use of bicycles on-campus at higher learning institutions including International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) is at a very low level. It is imperative to understand what influences bicycle use on-campus. This paper identifies factors that influence bicycle use in IIUM from the opinion of bicyclists. The main data used in this paper were from literature reviews, observational surveys, and field survey questionnaires. Univariate and bivariate analysis techniques were applied to the data to achieve the objectives of this study. The major findings show that good conditions and adequate bicycle facilities are some of the main factors, among others, that encourage students to cycle on-campus. At the end of this paper, some recommendations are suggested to increase bicycle use among the IIUM community on-campus.
