Commuter and Off-Campus students make up a large percentage of the student population at the University of Saint Francis. Included in this unique population are commuter students who reside at home with a parent or guardian, off-campus students who are eligible to live off campus and those who have lived on campus previously (see Residency Requirement), as well as post-traditional students who work full time, have families at home, or are returning for a second degree.

Living off campus

Living off campus has its benefits and challenges, and Commuter & Off-Campus Services exists to help non-residential students throughout their time at USF. We work to provide support that will enhance the USF experience: we send out periodical e-newsletters, collaborate with Student Activities to plan social events that take place during the day, and provide workshops aimed at the unique needs of non-residential students.  It is our hope that in doing these things we are providing the resources, support and advocacy non-residential students need to be successful.

We want you to feel connected to the USF community! Be sure to like follow us on Twitter. We’ll keep you up to date on what is happening on campus and ways that you can get involved. Check out sf.presence.io for an up-to-date look at what is happening on campus. You can also download the Cougar Life app on your phone (just search for “Cougar Events” in the app store)!

If there is anything we can do to make your experience better, please contact commuter@sf.edu.
