Commuter Resources

Are you ready to improve your drive time, save money? A better commute can mean improvements to our environment, the economic climate and improved quality of life for everyone. If you’re commuting to UConn Health, you will need to know the options for getting to campus and University services and resources available once you are here. Get started with the information below:

News and Alerts

When moving from building to building on the campus, it is vitally important that everyone use the shuttle service. This is especially critical during peak times for clinical volumes, such as the current flu epidemic.

As a reminder, please plan on arriving at least five to ten minutes before your bus is scheduled to depart. This will ensure that you will leave your destination at the scheduled time. For the most up-to-date bus schedules, please visit the Parking and Transportation Department website.
