While on-campus parking is frustrating, most students still choose to bring their cars. Since you can have a car on campus all four years (for free!), many people choose to have their own car as their main source of transportation. However, if you choose not to bring your car to school, there are other sources of transportation for students, including the trolley and the shuttle. All on-campus trolleys and shuttles are free and run every 15 minutes. The trolley stops at the Slane Center, Vert Stadium, The Village, and University Village. The shuttle bus will take you to the Slane Center, The Village, townhomes, and the Terrace Apartments. The shuttle will also run to off-campus locations like Target and Hobby Lobby at certain times during the day.
When you need to get home for breaks or are going to visit some friends at their colleges, High Point provides that, as well. There’s a train station in town where you can catch an Amtrak to anywhere you need to go. If you’re not within train distance to your destination, then the Piedmont Triad International Airport is 15 minutes away and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport is about an hour to an hour and a half away. If you’re flying home for breaks, then High Point provides free shuttle services to Greensboro, Raleigh, and Charlotte. All you have to do is make your reservation and wear some High Point spirit wear, and you’re good to go!
