Commuter Life

Indiana State University... your home away from home!

Who is a commuter student? Indiana State University defines a commuter student as one who does not live in a residence hall on campus.

Commuter students comprise roughly 60% of the entire student population at Indiana State University! Whether you live in Terre Haute or a nearby town, at home with your parents or in an apartment just down the street, Commuter Life offers a variety of programs and services to help you connect with the Indiana State University community.

Live-On Requirement: University Housing Policy states that first-year students (with less than 32 earned academic hours) are required to live in University Residence Halls unless they live and commute from their parent or legal guardian's home (within a 60-mile radius of campus). Student must complete exception form with Residential Life Office.
