Lawrence provides a shuttle from the main campus to the athletic complex that is not adjacent to the campus proper. This shuttle runs Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Weekend hours vary based on varsity program schedules.
The Office of Campus Life provides a local shopping shuttle that runs a regular route to the local mall, select grocery stores, and movie theaters. The schedule of this shuttle is determined term to term based on the availability of student drivers. Lawrence also provides a service shuttle, which is a shuttle that operates on an as-needed basis to transport students to volunteer organizations in the Fox Valley.
