FAQ Transportation

May I bring a car?

Yes. The on-campus parking lots for residence hall students are located by the residence halls, and require a parking permit. Students will not be able to drive to class; however, NIU has an outstanding bus system to assist students in getting to class and around the community.  

Where do I catch a bus to class?

Buses pick up just outside the front doors of each residence hall. They arrive about every 10 minutes during the week and every 25 minutes on weekends. There are also routes throughout the DeKalb-Sycamore area that take students to local shopping venues.
