Commuter Students

As more than 50% of Marymount University’s student population commute to campus, our commuter students are a priority. The Office of Commuter and Graduate Student Services strives to build community among commuter students by engaging them in campus life. OCGSS will connect students with appropriate campus and community resources to help them best manage transportation, parking, dining, leadership, and all aspects of being a MU student.

Need a place to store your belongings?

The Lee Center’s Commuter Student Lockers are available to all commuter students free of charge. Choose from any of 90 lockers, conveniently located on the lower level of the Lee Center. Secure a locker by visiting the Lee Center Manager’s Office, across from the main level Information Desk. Lockers are rented on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students are required to supply their own locks–all you need is a valid Marymount ID.

Need a place to stay? Request a short-term stay.

Commuter students have the opportunity to register for a room in advance to their desired date of stay.  After you have submitted a registration request, it will be processed and you will receive a confirmation of registration email. Be sure to read more about the policies and procedures here.

On campus often and don’t want to pack a lunch? Purchase a Commuter Meal Plan.

Commuter students that are on campus often and don’t want the hassle of packing lunch and bringing it to campus can purchase a Commuter Meal Plan. A Commuter Meal Plan allows students to can lunch in the Gerard Dining Hall or purchase a salad or sandwich from Lola’s Cafe. For students with classes in Ballston, Commuter Meal Plans also work in Eat located in the Ballston classroom building.
