Transportation and Mobility

Transportation and mobility are essential for life inside the University. The University is committed to promoting sustainable transport and mobility as it strives to protect the environment and the health of the commuting public. This aligns with the sustainable transportation hierarchy that prioritizes non-motorized transport and public transport.

Thus, the University shall find ways to respond to the transportation and accessibility needs of its constituents in ways that do not present high environmental costs but do not impinge on the mobility of succeeding generations of students and University employees. It shall ensure the availability of a reliable network of transportation and road infrastructure, whose construction and maintenance are integrated with natural ecosystems.
