3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The bus system is incredibly helpful but the schedule is rather confusing.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus transportation is okay, not exceptionally outstanding. The major problem I have with the campus transportation is that every semester he schedule drastically changes resulting in one having to once again figure out the complex bus system in comparison to their schedule. I also dislike the fact that their is no shuttles that simply run to the neighboring cities on the weekends on various trips. Its as though we live in the middle of nowhere and the school just turns a blind eye to the depressive and anxiety that causes students.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There are many ways to get to places outside of Oxford either by bus or by shuttle

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have the Dayton and Cincinnati airport not too far away and there are always people going home that you can catch a ride with.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Need more environmentally friendly alternatives such as bike rental systems and electric buses with better schedules.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most Miami students walk to class. The campus and town are so close that one defiantly does not need a car at this University. In the winter when it gets cold, there is a very well-structured bus system that transports students around Oxford and Miami's immediate campus. There are also local cab companies that take students around town. These companies also provide transportation to the airports during breaks. Although it is not necessary, most students in their third year bring their car to school.
