For increased pedestrian safety, the university encourages you to leave your personal vehicles at home when you come to campus. There are a number of alternative commuting options, including walking, biking, taking public transit, or ride-sharing with your neighbors. Once you are on campus, Zipcars can be used for off-campus meetings or personal appointments.

    Driving Safety

    There are numerous crosswalks on campus, and it is important to understand drivers' rights and responsibilities at these key crossings. Illinois State Law requires vehicles to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. On the University of Illinois campus, it is important to take that a step further and watch for pedestrians stepping into the path of your vehicle. Drive defensively on campus. Do not let someone else's mistake involve you in a fatal accident.
