Parents of Commuter Students Corner

IMG_8032The Commuter Commons is here to help! If your student is commuting to campus, the Commuter Commons provides a dedicated space and a variety of services for commuting students. They also arrange events throughout the year to build a strong community among students who live off campus.

At Commuter Commons, students have access to study and social areas, a kitchenette (with fridge and microwave!), day-use lockers, a changing room, peer advising, CLUE tutoring and a printing station.

Top four things your student can do while commuting to campus:

  • Sleep – catch up on those REMs they may have missed while studying
  • Study – review class notes before the big midterm
  • Make new friends – find other students who commute to campus
  • Check the Commuter Commons website ( for upcoming events

If you have any questions about your student’s transition, or if they need commuting help, please feel free to contact us at or visit our website for resources:
