If you arrive on a different day, or outside of these hours, you will be responsible for finding your transportation to campus. Some suggestions include:

Lyft, or Uber, (You need to get the app on your phone and link it to your credit card if you haven’t already). 

Groome Shuttle: This is the most affordable option for someone traveling to campus on their own, but the bus will not drop you off directly on campus.

  • Shuttles will drop you off at Village Cafe DeLand, exit 116, 431 Orange Camp Road, but from there, you will need a taxi or Uber/Lyft to get to campus (you can call a taxi or use Uber or Lyft)

Hire a private car
