College of DuPage has teamed up with Pace to help students connect with other students who are interested in carpooling to campus. Interested students should register with PaceRideShare and choose College of DuPage as their "employer."

Pace provides bus transportation to and from campus on weekdays. The Office of Student Life no longer sell Pace Bus cards. Please go to the Ventra Chicago website to find out how and where you can purchase your bus card.

 

Discount tickets for area movie theaters and Six Flags Great America are offered for sale to the college community. In addition, tickets for student club and organization events are available periodically through the Office of Student Life.

There are many national businesses that offer discounts to college students.
