If you find an apartment you love that is further from FAMU, you may expand your transportation options. You may opt to purchase a bike and scooter. An electric scooter can zip you to campus, even on the hot days in Florida.

Make sure to check out the parking on campus page on the FAMU website for updated rules before you attempt to park on campus. Parking on campus is enforced 24/7, and a parking pass is required. Parking spaces on campus may be limited, and you must park in a legal space, or you will risk being immobilized or towed, so this option may not work for an everyday option.
