Student Housing Parking and Transportation

There is also onsite parking available for student housing residents at the Dubai Silicon Oasis student accommodation. DSO provides a daily weekday housing shuttle that provides roundtrip transportation between housing and campus.

Commuter Transportation

The Office of Student Affairs provides commuter transportation services for students traveling to various regions in Dubai, Sharjah, and Ajman. To enroll in this service, please submit the Transportation Request Form. Transportation fees are assessed on a semester basis, with designated fixed pick-up and drop-off points.


Student Transportation Request

Please note that all current/returning students need to request commuter transportation on a semester basis.
The drivers will not pick you up unless you have officially requested transportation.


Please note that all bus service routes are determined based on the locations and on a first-come first-service basis.

We strive to accommodate all transportation requests at an economic price but in some cases, if an address is out of the bus route it will not be accommodated. The sooner we receive your transportation request, information will be shared with you, however, the final bus routes are determined closer to the start of the semester. Confirmation emails with the bus details and your confirmed seat on the bus will be sent 2 weeks prior to the semester starting.

If you move while using the service, depending on your new address, it is not guaranteed that you will still be able to use the service. To stop using the transport service, you must email the office of Student Affairs.

Commuter Transportation Deadlines

Any commuter transportation requests received from current students after the deadline dates are subject to the 500.00 AED late fee. New students are exempt from this late fee for their first semester. The deadline dates are the same annually:

  • Fall Deadline – July 15th

  • Spring Deadline – December 15th

 

  • As a courtesy, there is a two-week trial time from starting on the first day of classes for new students using the commuter service.  The service must be canceled before 12:00 pm on the last Friday of the two-week period (10th day) of the semester.
  • The trial period charge is fixed and does not change based on the number of times the student has used the service.
  • If you cancel transportation after the deadlines, there will be no refund. Cancellation must occur either by email Student Affairs Office (dubaistudentaffairs@rit.edu) or in person.
  • There is no transport service provided in the Summer semester.
