Is There Travel Time Between College Classes?

Question: This may be the dumbest college question in the world … so dumb that I was embarrassed to ask my tour guide when I visited a college that I really want to go to. I had been looking at the courses I could take there, and there is one course I really like that meets three hours per week—Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. and then another course I also want to take that happens to meet three hours per week–Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. The campus is pretty big and I think that it would take nearly 10 minutes to get from one class to the next, even on a bike. So does that mean I can’t sign up for the 10 o’clock class if I’m taking the 9? I don’t want to walk in late every day. My high school has a three-minute “pass time” between classes. I’m wondering if colleges do the same, although three minutes doesn’t seem like it would be nearly enough time for me to cross the campus.
