Calculating total percentage of students using more sustainable commuting options: Office of Sustainability staff first determined the number of students with commuter permits (996); this was then divided by the combined number of FTE and PTE on-campus and off-campus residents and commuters (11,749).

The vast majority of Marquette’s junior and senior level students living in non-university off-campus housing still reside within a one mile radius of campus. These students primarily walk and bike to class. This helps explain why the percentage of students using more sustainable commuting options is so high.

The data used for our calculations is from fall 2012.
