Office of Student Engagement

Commuter Life

Commuter Life and Off-Campus Housing provide resources, programs, and information to meet the needs of off-campus students as well as potential commuters. We provide a range of engagement and involvement opportunities for commuting and off-campus students that assist in their connection to the campus community and one another. Whether it is welcoming new commuters to Thomas Jefferson University, assisting students in finding off-campus housing and/or roommates, or continuing to build the commuter community, all of our efforts are dedicated to serving the needs of commuting and off-campus students.

    Commuter Cash (C-Cash) is an incentive program to promote campus connection and involvement for commuter and off-campus students. Students can earn C-Cash for attending commuter events, attending tutoring, and participating in a number of campus life events. At the end of the semester, students can use C-Cash to win various prizes. Past prizes include Phillies tickets, external hard drives, Jefferson gear, concert tickets, beats by Dre, Nintendo Wii, Xbox360,  gift cards, and more!

    Commuter Assistants (CA) are upper-classmen, off-campus students who will help with your introduction and transition into the Jefferson community. CAs provide opportunities for students to connect with one another and familiarize themselves with campus resources, traditions, and services. CAs will host many special events and programs to help students get involved and meet other members of the Jefferson family.
