Explore more of commuter life at UT. Here's everything you need to know about parking, buses and tips for commuter students.


Rocket Bussing
Transit Services

As a commuter, you'll love our busing system to get from class to class once you park your car. UT Transit Services provides transportation between Main Campus, Health Science Campus, Scott Park Campus and the Center for the Visual Arts. In addition, they stop at some area apartment complexes along the routes.

The Gold and Blue loops run through Main Campus every 15-20 minutes, and you can see satellite tracking of the busses on your phone, so you know when a bus is nearby.

Commuter Tips

Even though you won’t be here on campus 24/7, it’s still going to be important that you:

  • Get involved — Join a student, professional or Greek organization. You’ll meet new people and have some great experiences. Learn more at utoledo.edu/studentaffairs
  • Use academic assistance — Tutoring, study groups and writing help are all available on campus and electronically.
  • Go to campus events — You have free admission for all home athletic games, and UT offers all sorts of other social and cultural events during the day, after hours and on the weekends.
  • Consider a meal plan or Rocket Card Dollars — We have affordable meal plans for students who only eat a few meals a week on campus, or you can load money onto your Rocket ID card for use at on-campus and nearby dining venues. To learn more, visit utoledo.edu/mealplans
  • Use other resources — We have on-campus childcare, a student medical center, a pharmacy, a counseling center and more services to help while you’re at UT.
  • Visit the Office of Commuter Student and Off-Campus Services — They can help troubleshoot any commuting challenges. Visit utoledo.edu/studentaffairs/osi/commuter
