Commuter Student Services

The Office of Commuter Student Services, a member of the Division of Student Life, is located in Suite 222 of the Student Activities Center and is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (with later hours available by appointment). It offers services, programs, advocacy and outreach on behalf of undergraduate commuter students.

Programs offered by the office include Lunch and Learn workshops, Commuter Connection breakfasts, Commuter Fall and Spring Festivals, the Academic Achievement Reception, and an Adult Learner/Non-Traditional Student Network. One of its major programs, the Commuter Assistant Program, allows new commuter students the opportunity to be paired with experienced student leaders who can offer support, advice and camaraderie during the new students' first year.

The Office of Commuter Student Services is continuously reaching out and providing information to commuter students through Blackboard, email, campus bulletins and outreach events such as Parking Lot Outreach Days and Commuter Appreciation Days. In addition to providing programs, services and outreach, the office advocates for commuter students by bringing the commuter student perspective to campus committees and programs. In collaboration with campus constituencies such as the Department of Student Activities, the Department of Campus Recreation and the Commuter Student Association, the Office of Commuter Student Services actively assists and encourages commuter students to become full participants in campus life.
