Parking & Transportation
All USI students are assessed a Transportation/Parking Fee each semester that funds the upkeep of campus roadways, parking lots, pedestrian sidewalks and paths, and the on-campus shuttle bus service.

Commuter students are not required to register their vehicle, but it is highly encouraged.

USI and METS (Metropolitan Evansville Transit System) provide bus transportation on campus and to the Eagle Plaza and Schnuck's Transfer Terminal for USI students. There is no charge for students providing a valid University ID (Eagle Access Card).
