Office of Student Engagement

Commuter Life Staff

The Office of Commuter Life & Off-Campus Housing is a significant contributor to students’ connection to Thomas Jefferson University. We provide resources, programs, and services to meet the needs of our off-campus student population. Whether it is welcoming new commuters, assisting students in finding off-campus housing and/or roommates, or continuing to build the commuter community, the Commuter Life Staff is dedicated to serving the needs of commuting and off-campus students. We can be found in the Office of Student Engagement (Kanbar 317).

As an off-campus student, you will be assigned a Commuter Assistant (CA) according to the first letter of your last name. CAs are upper-class, off-campus students who will help with your introduction and transition into the Thomas Jefferson University community. CAs provide opportunities for new students to connect with one another and familiarize themselves with campus resources, traditions, and service. CAs will host many special events and programs to help first-year/new transfer commuters connect to Jefferson.
