The Commute to Campus
Many commuters at Rose Hill drive to campus. Parking decals cost $460 per year, or $11 per day, and can be purchased at the Security Office, located in Thebaud Hall. Rose Hill commuters also make their way to campus via the many convenient public transportation options around campus, including the Metro-North, the D and 4 trains, and the Bx9 and Bx12 buses. Commuters using public transportation should be prepared to find an alternate route home in the event of a mass transit delay or service stoppage. It is a good idea to know the cost of a taxi ride home and carry that amount of cash at all times. If you plan to be on campus late at night, you may want to consider driving or planning a ride home. Thinking about commuting issues in advance can help new students prepare for times when their routine may become disrupted because of weather, mass transit delays or the need to be on campus at night.
Here at Fordham, we expect our students to immerse themselves in campus life. Meeting with professors during office hours, researching papers in Walsh Library, participating in study groups, attending social or weekend social programs, joining in one of our service programs and assuming a leadership position in an on-campus club are just a few of the advantages of attending Fordham. All this on-campus involvement may mean your college schedule appears to be less structured than your high school schedule. It is important to have a conversation with family and roommates about basic expectations such as curfews, checking in with home when staying late on campus, or alternative commuting options in the event of an emergency. Discussing issues like these before classes begin can help ease the transition to college and helps families and students stay connected.
