Do you need a ride to your site?
Transportation is provided to Niagara University students who are participating in IMPACT/ReNU activities that are two or more hours. Students must be registered for the placement or activity prior to signing up for transportation.
NOTE: Education and students participating in NUCAP DO NOT need to register on this page. See below for details.
Transportation is available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Students needing to leave NU before 8 a.m. or picked up at their placement site after 5 p.m. must provide their own transportation. As always, students with NU parking permits are expected to transport themselves. NUCAP transportation hours and days are activity dependent.
Students will be picked up in front of Varsity Village House 2, directly behind Dunleavy Hall. Please make sure that you check the van that you are going to your placement to and in what van you are returning to NU in, they may be different. You may have to wait up 10-15 minutes for your ride to pick you up.
Contact the IMPACT/ReNU office at 716.286.8750 if you experience any issues with transportation.
Are you signed up for a NUCAP activity? Transportation is automatically provided for you. You do not have to complete the transportation registration form.
College of Education Students
Transportation is available to College of Education students participating in a field experience placement.
Students who have a campus parking permit are expected to provide their own transportation to and from their field experience placement.
Please verify school closings directly with your participating teacher. Please share such information with the IMPACT Office so transportation can be planned accordingly.
Attendance is an important issue. The local schools depend on Niagara students to be there at their scheduled times. Excessive absences (two or more) will be reported to your professor. Students who do not complete their 20 hours by the deadline set by the Teacher Education/Field Experience Office are in jeopardy of receiving an incomplete or failing grade in their courses. You are expected to maintain your field experience schedule throughout the semester and should not plan to complete the 20 hours in two or three full days (extenuating circumstances can be addressed with the College of Education).
Please contact the Teacher Education/Field Experience Office (located in the Academic Complex) at 716.286.8103 or email email@example.com with questions.
