Commuting

Many of our students live within commuting distance of campus and spend less time on campus than those who live in one of the residence halls. If you are a commuter student, we hope you will take advantage of what we have to offer in terms of co-curricular activities, and social or recreational events.

The Student Life staff wants to work with commuter students, both individually and as a group, to enrich the college experience. Services available to commuters at Pitt-Johnstown include:

  • More than 100 Student Organizations are available on campus. Visit the annual Activities Fair in September at the Student Union to meet with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Women in Engineering, Black Action Society, and Ski Club. A new club can be started with a minimum of ten people.
  • Commuter rooms are available on campus through the commuter-in-residence program. Many commuter students also take advantage of study areas in Owen Library and the food court area in the Student Union. (Special commuter meal plans are available.)
  • Bus Service is available through CamTran (Cambria County Transit Authority), which  provides local bus service between the Pitt-Johnstown campus, Walmart Plaza, Galleria Mall, and the Main Street terminal in downtown Johnstown by bus routes #9 and #11. Schedules may be obtained online.
