First-Year Student Permit

Ithaca College aims to foster sustainability thinking and practice into its day-to-day management. Our efforts further our goal to create a “living-learning” laboratory that models and reinforces what our students are learning about sustainability.

Furthermore Ithaca College recognizes the importance of strengthening the student connection to the College and laying the foundation for student success during the first year. As a result we strongly urge students not to bring vehicles to campus, particularly during their first year. Instead consider the alternative transportation options described here.
