Philadelphia University considers commuters invaluable members of the campus community. Housed within the Office of Residence Life, Commuter Programs provides programs and services for the commuter population such as information regarding public transportation, car- pooling, off-campus housing facilities seeking tenants, tenants seeking roommates and sub- leasers. Residence Life also offers monthly social programs for commuter students to meet and get to know one another, opportunities to be involved on the Commuter Student Board and the Spring Semester Off-Campus Housing Fair.
