Commuters in Residence

Commuter in Residence Application

Any student who wishes to claim a commuter room at this point should visit the Office of Housing and Residence Life starting the first day of classes (August 27).  Rooms will be granted on a first-come first-served basis.

No commuter rooms will be assigned between now and August 27. 

The online application is no longer active.    (Posted 08-16-2012)


Students who choose not to live on campus have the option of signing up to be part of the Commuter In Residence program. Participation in this program provides commuting students with a room on campus where they can study, store belongings, and interact with residential students.  Participation in this program is completely free of charge.

First-year commuter students are assigned to either Laurel, Maple, or Oak Hall. Upper-class commuter students are assigned to Larkspur Lodge.  A commuter student shares a room with approximately five other commuter students (upperclass students share a room with more than 5). As commuters-in-residence, students are issued a room/locker key. Inside the room, commuters share the following: study desks and chairs, campus telephone, and a MicroFridge. The rooms are available every class day from 6:00 am to Midnight. Students are not permitted to remain overnight in commuter rooms.

Space is limited and is provided on a first come first served basis.  Sign-ups for this program open the first class day of each semester.
