Getting Around

The Division of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) offers transportation services for qualified students, staff, faculty, and visitors who have temporary or permanent disabilities.

DRES provides the best transportation system for persons with disabilities of any university in the United States servicing approximately 20,000 trips annually. Providing students, staff, faculty and visitors easier access to classes and activities better enables achievement of educational goals.

Because our campus has more than 1,000 buildings, it is impossible to maintain regularly scheduled bus service to all campus locations. Students with disabilities are encouraged to arrange for housing on the University campus to best serve their needs.

DRES' Office of Accessibility and Transportation Services includes regular route rides, night rides, call-in service, and rides for special events within the University Campus District. In addition, we provide rides to Willard Airport, the Illinois Terminal, and various off-campus locations. The provides service within and outside the University District and all buses are lift-equipped.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is one of the most accessible campuses in the world. The University prides itself on making the highest quality academic programs available for all students.

By ensuring students equal and easy access to the many programs of the University of Illinois we provide all students the opportunity to reach their goals. Any obstacles we are able to remove, or make more manageable, make those goals more achievable.
