Commuter Life

When you're a commuter student, it's important to have a space and a community to call your own on campus. The Commuter Life Program at Ambrose fosters community and a sense of belonging among students who live off campus. The Director of Commuter Life oversees the program with the support of student Commuter Life Leaders (CLLs).

Watkins Commuter Collegium

The Watkins Commuter Collegium is a comfortable and welcoming space that functions as a home away from home for our undergraduate commuter students. It’s a place where you can work or unwind between classes while making connections with your fellow students.
