Commuting Life Overview

Approximately one-third of undergraduate students commute to campus. Many opportunities and resources are offered to benefit commuter students with their educational and social experience.

Commuter students must live with parents or legal guardians within a 50-mile radius of Moravian University. Students who are approved for a change to commuter status and are found living in an off-campus property may face student conduct action and will be billed for room and board.

Commuter Eligibility

  • Full-time undergraduate students living within a 50-mile radius of Moravian University
  • Part-time undergraduate students
  • Graduate and non-traditional students

Commuting Benefits and Resources

  • Commuter students save money on housing and meal plan costs, while having the same access to campus resources as resident students.
  • There are many lounge spaces on campus where commuter students can relax between classes and activities.
  • Commuter students can get involved in a wide variety of activities and organizations, including the Commuter Student Association, a student organization led by commuters for commuters.
