Check out the Commuter Student Life team in Microsoft Teams to join the conversation! This is a requirement for all new commuter students.

  • January 11-15, 1-2 p.m. daily

Living off-Campus

Living as a commuter student is an opportunity for personal growth and development essential to life after college. Students will be faced with new challenges that will allow them to make decisions, assume leadership, and be the image of Christ to non-student community members.

Utilize the off-campus housing site to look for more housing options, connect with potential roommates and list available apartments.

Consult the Off-Campus Living Guide for more details on commuter expectations.


Meet other commuters who, just like you, are looking for ways to build relationships with other students by attending our commuter events. Stay connected on social media and the commuter newsletter to hear about the next event!
