College Sophomore

Transportation: I do not utilize public transportation, I have a car and I also live on Webster University's Campus.

Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There is not a specific transportation system for campus because you can walk to everything on campus in under ten minutes. Having a car to venture off campus is nice though.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Transportation if ok. Cars are usually needed.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: You can get a free Metro Pass to ride the busses around the area and metro link trains into the city. Most places necessary to go are within walking distance. Extra activities and fun usually a car is ideal to get there in a short, timely fashion.

There are about four or five parking lots from which to choose, but it is best to occupy a parking spot between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. The best days are on Fridays, when the strict schedule of finding a parking spot lessens because students tend to schedule themselves to not have classes on Fridays.

In order to occupy a parking spot on campus, you will have to obtain a parking tag through Public Safety that costs $120, a fee that is added to your student account. There have been students that do not buy a parking tag, but they are usually caught and either given a warning first or a ticket. If a parking tag seems out of your reach, there is the option of taking the MetroLink to the Shrewsbury station with MetroBuses right there to take you to the campus. However, the buses are known to be late, and the fate of arriving on time or late to class might be a gamble.
