The Commuter Student Experience

  • Their own spacious commuter lounge — complete with charging stations, free lockers, a coffee bar, kitchen, and collaborative meeting room.
  • LU Commuter Community Groups. Led by Community Shepherds and designed to give commuters spiritual connectivity similar to the residential student experience, these groups are centered around Campus Community and are set up as either male, female, or co-ed.
  • The Commuter Student Association. This student-led group offers members opportunities to serve and attend fun events, engage in local service activities, participate in leadership training, and connect with other off-campus students in a warm and welcoming environment.
  • Dining plans that provide convenient and affordable options for taking advantage of Liberty’s many dining locations.
