A guide to getting around FAU’s campuses

The UP’s guide to the multiple modes of transportation around and between campuses.

August 21, 2017

FAU’s South Florida campuses are, for the most part, known as commuter colleges. As such, driving to school is the most popular form of transport. However, just because you may not have a car, doesn’t mean you’re out of options.

Here’s our rundown of the different methods for getting around the Boca campus as well as transportation between the Boca, Davie and Jupiter campuses.




One of the worst feelings when you first get to college is not having a clue where you are on campus. A simple solution is downloading the FAU Mobile App, which is available for iOS and Android users. The app includes a useful map with GPS, so you can see exactly where you are on campus and what direction you’re facing.

Another mobile app, FAU Owl Guides, features an event calendar as well as a New Student Orientation program designed to help introduce new students to the campus. The New Student Orientation section of the app includes orientation schedules, maps, and services for transfer students. It is available for iOS and Android users as well.
