Commuter Students

As a commuter student, you may not be on campus 24/7—but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of the same great Michigan Tech experiences and perks as residential students.

We know that your work-life balance may be different from other students, and we’re here to help. We offer a Commuter Assistant—a current Michigan Tech commuter student who is available to answer questions, plan events, and more. Our Commuter Assistant:

  • Maintains regular office hours where you can pop in to chat or to get questions answered;
  • Sends regular updates to, the commuter student listserv;
  • Writes a weekly blog, The Commute; and
  • Plans free commuter student events to help you get involved, adapt to University life, and get connected on campus.
