LIFE AT WSU

  • Commuter Services

    Whether you live at home, rent an off-campus apartment with friends, or fit college classes into your busy work-and-family schedule, you are a valued member of the Worcester State University student body. You belong to the WSU family, and we want the campus to be your home away from home. In the Commuter Services Office, we are committed to keeping you connected to Worcester State—helping you stay informed about upcoming activities and events and facilitating connections with professors and staff members.

    Our programs and services give you many opportunities to:

    • Meet other commuter students
    • Plan events for commuter students
    • Study—and relax—in the Student Center between classes
    • Engage with the Worcester State campus community
    • Seek assistance from professors and staff members

    When you have downtime between classes, you can hang out and meet with friends in the Student Center’s living room—the Charter Business TV Lounge—on the 2nd floor of the center. The lounge is fully equipped with couches and tables, flat-screen televisions with cable service, ping pong and billiards tables, refrigerator, microwave, charging station, and more. See the full range of Student Center offerings.

    Commuter Advisory Board
    Our Commuter Advisory Board (CAB) exists to encourage you and other commuting students to become involved in campus life. CAB plans student trips, pool tournaments, monthly breakfasts, socials, family-friendly events, and other programs. The board is open to all commuters. We invite you to join us and share your ideas. We meet on Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. in Office 204 of the Student Center.

    Commuter Assistant Program
    The Commuter Assistant Program (CAP) is here to help you make a seamless transition to college life. As a first-year student, you’ll meet with your commuter assistant and group members throughout the fall semester. You also will have the opportunity to participate in programs that will strengthen your relationship with the campus community. You can learn more about CAP at the commuter session during orientation or by emailing Sarah Potrikus.

    We’re Here for You
    The entire staff of the Student Involvement and Leadership Development Office welcomes your suggestions and invites you to share any concerns you have while attending WSU. We’re here to assist and advocate for you.
