Commuting Students

Living off-campus? We have plenty of resources for you.

If you are living in Stratford, Charlottetown, or Cornwall, the Trius Transit system reaches you, and as a student at UPEI, you can ride for free just by showing your student ID! You can view the bus schedule on their website.

Parking passes begin to be sold in late August and typically sell until they are sold out (within the first couple weeks of classes). They will be sold at the Parking Kiosk located on the main level of the W.A. Murphy Student Centre. More information about parking permits can be found here.

Storm closures: good ol’ PEI can get some rough weather and storm closures are bound to happen. A notice will be made by 6:30am if the campus isn’t opening in the morning, with a further announcement at 10am. For more information click here.

There are various lockers available for rent on campus. Some of the common ones are located in the Library breezeway and in Mcdougall hall. There will be a sign located at the lockers with instructions on how to rent them/the price.

There are showers located in the locker rooms in the Sports Centre and in the Engineering building.

Have some free time between classes? There are so many things you can do and so many places to hang out. Free periods in your schedule are good times to get some studying or class readings done to stay on top of your work. They are also the perfect time to go to the campus pub and get a bite to eat, or go to the gym.

Some popular hangout spots include the campus pub, the library, society lounges, and MacMillan Hall in the Student Centre.
