Thrive in college as a commuter student.
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 Worcester State family, and we want the campus to be your home away from home.

We have many services and programs, all of which are created to give you opportunities to engage with Worcester State in whatever way you feel most comfortable.

For Guardians of New Commuters
We are happy to answer any questions that guardians, parents and family members may have about their student’s life as a commuter. Questions can be directed to Commuter Services.
Topics to discuss with your student:
- Transportation to and from campus
- Costs of commuting and/or living off campus
- Time management as it relates to having time to commute to campus and walk to class
- New expectations between members of the household (Are curfews changing? Is your student being dropped off at campus? etc.)
- Eating on campus versus making meals at home to bring to school
