The Commuter Lounge, a favorite hangout for commuting students
Ely Center 103
The Commuter Lounge, in the basement of Ely Center, is one of the favorite on-campus hangouts for commuter students.
Opened in the Fall of 1995, it offers a variety of amenities such as a place to rest, to watch TV, and to work at the computer lab, as well as access to videophones, a small kitchenette that includes a refrigerator and a microwave, locker storage, and, most of all, a place to study. There is also a playroom for children to play with toys while parents catch up with their schoolwork.
The front desk in the Commuter Lounge is supervised by Commuter Lounge Assistants (CLAs), who are available to provide services and information to all commuter students.
Commuter students may reserve a locker at no cost. The Commuter Lounge will provide locks for students to use. Any commuter student wishing to reserve a locker should come to the Commuter Lounge during the first week of school and fill out a reservation form. Lockers are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Commuter students may store food in the refrigerator and use the microwave as well.
The study area has individual desks for commuter students to study alone, as well as a circular conference-style table for group study or work.
There is a wealth of information for on- and off-campus resources and activities for commuter students.
The Commuter Lounge has three Sorenson VP booths.
The computer lab has several computers with internet access for commuter students to do homework or to read e-mails.
The living room is a space for commuter students to rest, watch television, and interact with each other.
The playroom is an area where children can play while their parents do their homework or study. The playroom has toys for the children to play with.
