Commuter Information

Rosemont College welcomes you and encourages you to get involved in activities and make long-lasting connections and friends, even if you don't live on campus. Commuters are welcome to join any programs that are held in the residence halls, given the opportunity to serve on the Commuter Student Committee, and hold leadership positions across campus.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) Accessibility

SEPTA is a regional public transportation authority that operates multiple forms of public transportation services that includes bus, subway, elevated rail, commuter rail, light rail and electric trolleybus. Commuting to Rosemont College is very easy with SEPTA’s Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail just a half block away from campus.

Trains come and go every half an hour during the week and every hour on both Saturday and Sunday. The Norristown High Speed Line (100) has a station stadium (Villanova Stadium) that’s just under a mile from campus and a 15 minute walk away. 

Additionally, Rosemont College has an agreement with SEPTA and sells train tokens at a reduced rate for all students. You can purchase 5 SEPTA train tokens for just $9 per bag, tokens are available  in the Student Accounts Office that’s located in Good Counsel Hall. SEPTA also offers monthly passes that you can purchase in advance at a pre-paid rate.

Parking

Parking permits can be purchased through public safety for an affordable rate of just $25 for all four years through the office of Public Safety. All vehicles operated and parked on College property by full- and part-time students, faculty, and staff must be registered with Public Safety.

Commuter students can also access the commuter lounge located on the first floor of Alumnae Hall where they have a TV, couch, magazines, refrigerator, and their own space on campus to sit down and relax or do homework between classes.
