Cars on Campus
Having a car is a personal decision for you and your family. Most classes you attend will take place on the main campus in buildings that are a walking distance of only 3-10 minutes apart. UIW provides a free shuttle bus service that circles the campus from 6:45 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 6:45-12:00p.m. on Friday. On weekends, the bus also makes stops at nearby shopping centers. VIA, the local San Antonio bus transit system, has bus stops located adjacent to the campus and discount passes for students are available at the Student Center Information Desk.
You might find a vehicle a necessity if you are in majors that requires an off-campus internship or, if they are employed off campus. There is a parking fee for students who have a vehicle on campus.
