CCU is a pedestrian friendly campus, designed to encourage the use of sustainable transportation options such as walking or biking. The use of sustainable transportation can reduce parking demands, save time and money, ensure pedestrian safety, promote healthy lifestyles, and help create a cleaner environment.
In addition to being a walkable campus, Coastal Carolina University offers the following sustainable transportation options included in each student's tuition package:
Bicycles are an easy and affordable way to get around campus, especially with convenient bicycle parking at every building, designated biking lanes on Chanticleer Drive, and bike racks on all CCU shuttles. University Recreation offers a free bicycle borrowing program called Coastal Cycles at the HTC Center's Outdoor Center, where you can rent a bicycle for free for 30 days with your student ID. If you are bringing your own bicycle, please register it with Public Safety.
