Graham Commuter Lounge

Alpha RLC in Graham Hall has a lounge dedicated exclusively for commuter students. The lounge is located on the 1st floor and is a space for commuter students to relax, study, and socialize. Amenities include lockers for rent, TV, and adjacent kitchen.

At this time, it is important to note that access to the commuter lounge is limited to 50 students due to space constraints. Access is on a "first come, first serve" basis.

To request access to the commuter lounge, please contact Tedd Vanadilok for more details. Access requires the signing of a use agreement form through the Housing Office.

Commuter Student Union

The Commuter Student Union is a registered student organization (RSO) for commuter students and offers a "home away from home" for those who do not live on campus. They have get-togthers and social activities as well as provide support for one another. Being a member of the Commuter Student Union also grants you access to the commuter lounge in Alpha RLC (see more information above).
