There are several ways to get to VSU’s flagship campus, which is located in Baybay City, Leyte. Here are some of the most common routes:
From Manila via Tacloban:
A MNL-TAC airplane trip will land on the Daniel Z. Romualdez airport at San Jose, Tacloban City. From there: ride a jeepney to ‘Downtown’ or the city proper. Ask to be dropped at Van-Van’s or Duptours terminal for a van for Baybay. Hop on a Van-van’s or Duptours van en route to Maasin City, So. Leyte via Baybay city. The van trip usually takes about two hours or more. Once the van arrives at the Baybay City terminal, you can ride a multicab to ‘Visca’ (VSU’s former college name). Some multicabs enter the campus. Alternatively, you can hire an entire multicab to take you inside the campus if you travel in groups of 6 or more.
From Cebu via Ormoc:
There are daily trips for ferries and fast crafts from Cebu to Ormoc. Pick one that is most convenient to you. Which pier to go will vary depending on the trip you choose. These trips dock at Ormoc City port. Just outside the Ormoc City port is the terminal. Ride a bus to Baybay or a van and say your destination is ‘Visca’ (VSU’s previous name).
From Mindanao via Lipata:
From Mindanao, ride a bus or van to Surigao Lipata port. From there, ride a ferry to take you to Southern Leyte either through San Ricardo or Liloan port. When in Southern Leyte, take a bus or van en route to Baybay City, Leyte.
