"Even though we commute, there are so many ways to get involved. The students and staff are so helpful, it almost feels like we live on campus."
- Tom Vadala Class of 2005
The following services are available to students who live off-campus:
Commuter Lounge & Lockers
The Commuter Lounge is located on the plaza level of the Administration building. A television and refrigerator are available for commuter students. Students may rent a locker during the academic year for a fee of $10, which is refundable upon returning the key. Keys may be purchased during the first week of classes in the Counseling Center.
Worried about having enough cash on hand each day to grab a meal? Commuter students are encouraged to purchase bonus bucks, which can easily be added to their student ID. For each $100 of bonus bucks purchased, $110 will be added to your account, reflecting a 10% incentive. The bonus bucks can be used in Marian Main Dining Hall and the Atrium Cafe. Simply bring a check made out to Bon Appetit to the managers' office in Marian Hall and a bonus bucks account will be added to your ID.
Commuter Meal Plans
Commuter students have the option of purchasing one of two meal plans:
|Commuter Meal Plan||Cost per Semester|
|5 meals a week||$490|
|8 meals a week||$785|
Students wishing to purchase a commuter meal plan must do so each semester. Commuter meal plans are non-refundable. Please consider how often the meal plan will be used prior to making the purchase.
Students have access to the Simmons College William J. Holmes Sports & Fitness Center for swimming, aerobics and other fitness activities. Bring your Emmanuel identification and room key to the security office in order to get a Simmons pass.
