Uber Is in Session

Pack your backpacks, purchase your books and set up the dorm – Uber’s now in session! Starting today, Uber is rolling into 22 college towns across the US. We’re proud to be providing safe and affordable transportation options to an additional 600,000 students this year, and to 55% of the US population! To celebrate this milestone, we’re offering free rides in these 22 cities through the end of Labor Day Weekend! Spread the word to your friends and you might just move to the head of the class.


Both new and existing users — get your first five rides FREE (up to $25 each) through September 1.*


Back to school with Uber means you can request a ride at the push of a button — in minutes, you’ll be on your way to your destination. From the library to last call, let Uber be your ride!

Arrive at the stadium in style with time to spare for tailgating.
Get home safely from a late night library cramming session.
Grab dinner with friends. (2 a.m. taco run? We’ve got those covered, too.)
Push snooze and arrive on time for class.

Earn uberXtraCredit!

Sure, we got the tour during orientation, but we know there’s so much more to explore on your school’s campus. Share a photo of the view from your Uber on Instagram or Twitter — make sure to use your school’s dedicated hashtag. We’ll be selecting one lucky winner from each school to receive $500 in Uber credits. Who doesn’t love extra credit, especially uberXtraCredit?
