If you are a resident in Fordham housing and take at least one class at an alternate campus, then you are eligible to receive free passes. Eligible students will automatically receive digital passes on a weekly basis throughout the academic year.
Passes are assigned using the student’s home campus as the departure point. For resident students, their home campus is determined by the location of their residence.
If you are a commuter student and take classes at more than one campus simultaneously, then you are eligible to receive free passes. Note: If you do not live in Fordham housing, you are considered a commuter student, regardless of the proximity of your residence to any campus.
Passes are assigned using the student’s home campus as the departure point. For commuter students, their home campus is determined entirely by their school of enrollment.
Professors who require their students to travel to destinations other than class (photography lab, museum, botanical garden research, etc.) must submit a signed memo on their department letterhead, detailing their students' exact travel needs in order to receive free passes. Professors can either email or mail said memo to the Department of University Transportation.
NOTE: Free passes are not eligible for professors' office hours, group meetings with classmates, breaks between classes, nor travel for work in between classes. Please keep this in mind when creating your class schedule.
