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 Services 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 Freshmen (students with less than 32 earned academic hours) are required to live in University Residence Halls unless they live and commute from their parent’s home (within a 60-mile radius of campus), or have a valid exception.
