    What is the difference between in such a manner as to and so as to?

    Are these two terms interchangeable? For example, can "in such a manner as to" in the following sentence I found on a US university's website be replaced with "so as to" ? :

    No person may park or operate a motor vehicle on the campus in such a manner as to cause damage to any university property.

    Not quite. I don't think they mean exactly the same thing.

    They're not the same.

    in such a manner as to = in a way that will/may
    so as to = in order to
