The Office of Student Diversity Programs works closely with commuter students to help them take full advantage of the many opportunities that the University provides. A dedicated commuter lounge equipped with a television, tables for studying, lockers, and comfortable couches is conveniently located in the Barone Campus Center. The Office of Residence Life also has several rooms available on short notice for students in case of poor weather or unexpected transportation issues. Commuter students are encouraged to participate in all programs such as clubs and organizations, sophomore residential colleges, service learning, and study abroad.
The Commuter Lounge
Located in the Barone Campus Center, the Commuter Lounge is where you can hang out, get some work done, and interact with the other commuter students attending Fairfield University. The Commuter Lounge has wireless internet access, Ethernet hookups, a television, tables for studying, and comfortable couches.
Lockers are available for all commuter students to store personal items over the course of the day. Students interested in using a locker will be provided with a University-owned lock. The students must return the locks and clean out their lockers at the end of the year.
