A January 24, 2014 article from the Newark Post details the station's arrival:

Since November [2013], tall, blue metal bicycle repair stands began to appear in areas of heavy bike traffic around the University of Delaware campus...

The stands were the brainchild of associate director Gil Johnson of the Event Services Office of UD Student Centers. Johnson brought the idea to the SGA [Student Government Association], which approved the idea in May.

After this, the SGA worked with UD Parking and Transportation Services to designate locations for the stands. The final cost of the six stands was just over $4,000.

Showing their support of the project, three of the nonprofit Newark Bike Project’s founding members, Jamie Magee, Justin de Leon and Nikki de Leon, banded together to create a brief tutorial video explaining what the stands are and how they can be used. The video was posted to YouTube.
