  • Is it necessary to have a car/personal vehicle to get around campus and Ithaca?
    It is not necessary, as many apartments are in walking/biking distance, and Cornell/Ithaca offers an excellent bus system to and from campus. In addition, ride-share systems are available. Nonetheless, a car may be recommended for students who live further outside (e.g., in Dryden or Lansing), as bus services may be more limited there. Note that while on-campus parking permits are expensive, most on-campus parking lots are open (free of charge) after 5pm on weekdays, and all-day on weekends.
