Getting around Campus
The core of LSU’s campus is closed to most vehicles, making it a safer, pedestrian-friendly, and bike-friendly campus for students. The LSU Tiger Trails Transit System provides a convenient, free bus service for LSU students, faculty, staff, and visitors. You can track buses in real time by visiting lsu.transloc.com and/or by downloading the app for your smartphone.
Campus tours begin with an enrollment session each weekday (excluding holidays) at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., followed by a student-led walking tour of the university. Visit lsu.edu/visitcampus to schedule your tour or, if you can’t make it to campus, check out our virtual tour.
