Calling all commuters! Is commuting not what you expected it to be? Need some advice? Here you will find some of the best ways to ace being a commuter! Last year was my first year living off campus, and it took me some time to adjust to not being on campus and having instant access to everything like food, printing services and tutoring.
Specializing in providing assistance and information to off-campus residents and students who wish to live off-campus, OC3 can give you advice on where to live, landlords, and look over your lease before you sign -- for free. They even plan off-campus events for students.
Take a load off in this comfy space between or after classes. You can find the Commuter Lounge behind Visions in the University Union West.
Just because you live off campus doesn’t mean you have to stop eating in the dining halls -- check out what options you have. You can also eat in the MarketPlace, or grab a bagel at Einstein’s, or a donut from Dunkin’! There are so many options to fill up your tummy on campus.
Aside from the Commuter Lounge, you can spend some time sitting in the booths of the MarketPlace, on the Undergrounds couches, or even in the sitting area below the MarketPlace.
Don’t debate living off campus because you don’t have a car -- you don’t need one! Our school offers buses and shuttles for your traveling needs! Don’t fret if you miss a blue bus -- there are city buses that can get you to your destination as well. Just swipe your ID and enjoy the ride!
If you are one of the lucky ones with a car, there are plenty of parking lots -- but they fill up quick and finding a spot can become stressful. Grab a few friends to carpool and get there early to secure the perfect spot!
Just because you live off campus now doesn’t mean you can’t still reap the benefits of meeting with a tutor.
If you want a change of scenery from sitting in Bartle, or would rather have classes off campus, or maybe you’ve already left campus and forgot to print something out -- the Downtown Center is the place to go. It’s equipped with everything you need to be a successful commuter.
