Transportation on Campus
Bus: The University is serviced by the SEPTA route 92 bus, which travels north to King of Prussia and south to West Chester. The bus route also includes a stop at the Exton Mall. Furthermore, the bus stops at the Paoli train station, where connections can be made for points east and west.
IU Van: The University van is used for several activities and other University-sponsored functions. Van reservations are made Monday through Friday in the Safety and Protection Office, located in the terrace level of Lourdes. Individuals must complete a driver education program before being allowed to operate the Immaculata University van.
Parking on Campus
For the fall 2020 semester, parking permits must be purchased online.
Immaculata does not exclude any group from bringing a car to campus. Parking on campus is by permit only. All students, including those living off campus, who are taking three or more credits on campus, must purchase a parking permit to utilize any campus parking lot, including lots designated for General Parking. Parking permits can be obtained in the One Card/Parking Permit office, Villa Maria 34, which is located inside the Registrar suite. The fee is $25 for part-time students or $50 for full-time (12 or more credits) students for each academic year (September-August). Replacement fee for a lost permit is $10.
To obtain a parking permit, you will need to present your vehicle registration card and a completed parking permit form. Payment may be made with a credit card, money order, cash or check. No refund will be offered after payment is made. Permits for the upcoming academic year are available for purchase beginning the fourth week of August.
The Student Permit Form may be downloaded and brought in person to the OneCard/Parking Permit office. Copies of the form are available at the Parking Permit Office, the CAPS and Graduate offices, and also in the Campus Life Suite.
A brochure detailing campus parking rules and regulations is issued at the time the permit is obtained. Find information about parking lots on the campus map, available on this page.
Guest and temporary parking passes are available in the One Card/Parking Permit office and the main Safety and Protection office in Lourdes Hall.
Students attending classes at off-campus locations must follow parking regulations as posted or as announced by the host institution or facility.
The phone number for the OneCard/Parking Permit office is 484-323-3604.
