Commuter Students

We are glad you are here! At Anderson University it is our desire for commuter students to be an integral part of the campus community. Anderson defines commuters as students that live with a parent or legal guardian within the commutable distance. We encourage you to seek opportunities to be involved and utilize your personality, gifts, and abilities to build relationships and make a difference on our campus. We realize you have unique needs and our desire is to do our best to meet your needs.

Please know that Commuters must submit housing information and a parent verification form every year through the AU Housing website. This must be complete by the second week in September. If you are intending to commute from an area outside the commutable distance please contact the Department of Student Life ( to receive the Appeal Packet.

My role as the Commuter/Off-Campus Advisor is to be a resource, a friendly face, and a place where all questions are welcome. I hope you will feel free to contact me by phone, email, or come by my office--located in Decker 206A--anytime!
