Due to the limited availability of parking at St. Thomas, and in consideration of the University's commitment to a sustainable campus, alternative methods of transportation are encouraged. The University of St. Thomas offers a conveninent campus shuttle for students, faculty and staff between the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses on a regular basis (must show valid St. Thomas ID).
Many people in our community bicycle to campus, using the outdoor bike racks, or the bike storage lockers located in some of the parking ramps. Bicycling is a great form of exercise and helps you connect with both nature and the local community.
Many of our students, faculty, and staff live in the neighborhoods around our St. Paul campus and find walking to our campus the easiest way to get around. Remember you can request Public Safety Officer escort you around campus; call 651-962-5100 to request a campus escort.
Bus with Metro Transit
Our St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses are well-connected to the surrounding metro area through multiple Metro Transit routes. Metro Transit also offers "Park and Ride" for commuters from suburbs and surrounding areas. St. Thomas subsidizes the cost of bus passes to offer them to faculty, staff and students at a discounted rate.
