Roosevelt University has contracted with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to provide affordable public transportation to all degree seeking, full-time students at the Chicago Campus through the CTA U-Pass program. All eligible students will be charged a mandatory, non-refundable fee of $138.00 in each fall and spring semester. The U-Pass fee cannot be waived for full-time Chicago campus students.
Full time status for CTA U-Pass program is defined as:
12 or more credit hours per term for undergraduates
9 or more credit hours per term for graduate students
6 or more credit hours per term for doctoral students
After you have activated your card and registered it (recommended), if your card does not work on a CTA Bus or Rail/Pace, your card may be damaged or defective. You should first call 1-877-NOW-VENTRA to trouble-shoot the issue. If your card is defective, it can be replaced. Bring your defective card into the Registrar's Office (WB 1M14) and we will order you a new card. The first replacement is free, though subsequent replacements will be billed back to you ($4.97).
Students who are new to the university can pick up U-Passes on August 18 and 19 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Wabash Building 616.
Students must show their student ID and a copy of their bill or schedule (electronic is acceptable) in order to receive a U-Pass.
If you are a transfer student who has had a Ventra U-Pass with another school, please send an email to Allison Sullivan at email@example.com with your name, student ID number, previous school, previous student ID number, and Ventra number, located on the back of your card.
If you have had a Ventra U-Pass with Roosevelt University, you will use the same Ventra card. Your Ventra card will be activated on August 18. If you have lost your Ventra U-Pass, please stop by the Office of the Registrar anytime during business hours to order a new card. There is a $50 replacement fee.
If you are a continuing student at Roosevelt and you have not had a Ventra U-Pass before, please stop by the Office of the Registrar during normal business hours to order one.
For information about the distribution or use of the U-Pass, or if you have questions regarding your enrollment status or campus affiliation, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (312)341-2443.
Schaumburg students interested in requesting a U-Pass must fill out the Schaumburg U-Pass Request Form and return to the Student Accounts office of the Schaumburg Campus. Contact Allison Sullivan in the Office of the Registrar at 312-341-2443 to order a U-Pass.
Fall 2014 U-Passes will be active starting August 18, as long as the student is enrolled full-time.
Visit the Registrar's Office on the Chicago Campus with your Roosevelt ID for a replacement U-Pass. Only one replacement per semester is permitted. There is a $50 fee for replacement.
