The U-Pass is a special transit pass that provides full-time students with unlimited access to HRM’s Metro Transit for the academic year, from September to April. Students who are registered for summer courses will be eligible for unlimited access to HRM’s Metro Transit for the summer months, from May to August.

All full-time students automatically have the $155.50 U-Pass fee added onto their student account for the Fall and Winter semesters. Part-time students are not eligible for this service. During the Spring and Summer semesters, students enrolled in at least one course automatically have the $77.75 Summer U-Pass fee added to their student account.

During Welcome Week (1st week of September), you can pick up your U-Pass at the Service Expo located in Loyola Academic 290. After the first week of September, you can pick up your U-Pass from the SMUSA Information Desk.
