Transportation and Amenities
Navigating college life is complicated enough. We try to make it as easy as possible: from the bus that runs regularly to White Plains and Port Chester, to making sure you can bank, shop, and caffeinate on campus.
Parking and Transportation
For an overview on getting to campus, including directions, start here. The Office of Parking and Transportation handles all issues related to vehicles and transit procedures, including tickets and appeals. Students, staff, and faculty who plan to park on campus are required to register their vehicles.
Our shuttle bus transportation system is called the “Purchase Loop,” and provides service into nearby White Plains and Port Chester, providing riders with easy and affordable commuting, shopping, dining, and access to nearby train stations with service to Manhattan.
Each room on campus has the ability to connect one TV to our campus cable, which features over 90 channels including HBO, MTVU, and Purchase’s own student-run programming, PTV channel 69. To get plugged in, you’ll need to bring a TV with a QAM tuner, and a coaxial cable. To see listings and troubleshooting tips, check out our channel guide (PDF).
Technical difficulties? Contact our cable service provider, Apogee, 24/7 for cable help! Chat online, text “MyVideo” to 84700, or call (855) 465.6755.
There are three ATMs located on campus; at Campus Center North, the Bookstore, and the More Store.
Campus More Card Services
Your Purchase ID card is your ticket to using your meal plan, getting into buildings, riding the Loop, and accessing many other campus resources. For details, visit the More Card site.
Right behind the library, our bookstore has great rates on textbooks and rentals, as well as class supplies, school gear, snacks, and energy drinks—so you can power through “new books day.”
The More Store
Located in Fort Awesome, the More Store is our campus convenience store featuring snacks, toiletries, household supplies, dry cleaning services, and more. Open late every day of the week.
Every vending machine on campus can process credit, debit, and More Cards. And if one eats your money? Contact the More Card Office at 914–251–6330 and we’ll get it back for you.
