Commuter Programs, located in the Office of Student Development, seeks to aid our commuter students in learning about the variety of resources on and off campus. The program provides resources and programming to help students become active participants in campus life and contributing members of their community.
Be an active and informed member of the MassArt community. Participating in college activities is a great way to meet people and get involved at MassArt. Keep informed of daily events and activities by accessing the events calendar. Check your MassArt email account for valuable information including campus wide announcements. It is essential for commuter students to have an active College email account. Remember, College officials who may need to contact you will not have access to personal email addresses. Don't take a chance on missing out; check your MassArt Gmail account every day!
Make campus connections
Get to know your professors, staff members in Student Development, your work study supervisor, etc. They are important campus connections. Make sure to tell a faculty or staff member about obstacles associated with your commuting lifestyle that could impact classroom performance.
Lockers are available for Commuter students for the academic year, at no charge. Students must register the locker and have a Locker Contract on file with the Student Development office.
You can find instructions on registering a locker at the locker location, in the Lower Level of the Kennedy Building, around the corner from the bookstore. If you have questions, send an email to email@example.com
