That depends on where your house is located. If your house is located within 10-15 minutes to campus, then walking is best, otherwise, ride a bike or take the metrolink. Chapman is located near a train station. Metrolink offers students 10% off monthly pass, 7-day pass, 10-trip, one-way and round-trip tickets. They also offer a $10 round-trip for all you can ride weekend pass. If you rent an apartment or a house, they may include a laundry facility. If you have an emergency, you can always rent a car or take a taxi. There are other students already have cars on campus, perhaps you can team up to go shopping together. If you know of friends or relatives nearby, maybe you can get a lift. This is how DS does it for almost two years now by living on campus. Hope this helps.
