Commuter Students

Commuter Student Programs

Commuter Student Programs is here to support off-campus students, those who live in the Pittsburgh area, as well as those who commute to campus. We recognize mastering how to navigate from home to campus is only a small part of commuting. We strive to foster a sense of community and personal growth among commuter students while providing resources, mentorship, and advocacy to assist students in becoming more actively involved on Pitt’s campus.

Who is a Commuter Student?

If you are not living in university-owned housing (residence hall or apartment), you are commuter student.


First-Year Commuter Students

Commuter Student Programs provides additional support, resources, and mentorship to our first-year commuter student community. Each first-year commuter student will receive direct communication from the Office of First Year Experience over the summer about Welcome Week. During Welcome Week, we host Commuter Day on Wednesday, August 21st. Commuter Day provides a sense of community among first-year commuter students, connects you with our team of First Year Mentors, and assists students navigating Pitt for the first time.
