If you live right around campus, walking is your commute.  But if you live in Manayunk or further away from campus, you might need to consider purchasing a parking permit or taking public transportation.

Parking at SJU

If you drive to campus, you will need a parking permit to park in any SJU lot. Parking permits can be purchased from the Public Safety Customer Service Center in Campion 229. All off campus students should read, understand and abide by all parking policies and regulations.

For more information on parking, visit the Office of Public Safety and Security website.
