Commuter students make up 83 percent of the student population at the University of Saint Francis (Statistics: Spring 2013). Included in this unique population are traditional-aged students who are eligible to live off campus (see Residency Requirement), as well as those who work full time, have families at home or are returning for a second degree.
Living off campus has its benefits and challenges, and Commuter Services exists to help you throughout your time at USF. We work to provide support that will enhance the USF experience: we send out periodical newsletters, collaborate with Student Activities to plan bi-weekly social events that take place during the day, and provide workshops aimed at the unique needs of commuter students. It is our hope that in doing these things we are providing the resources, support and advocacy you’ll need to be successful as a commuter student.
We want you to feel connected to the USF community! Be sure to like the Commuter Services Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. We’ll keep you up to date on what is happening on campus and ways that you can get involved.
If there is anything we can do to make your experience better, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
