Campus life is not just for students living in the residence halls, but for commuter students as well. By definition, a commuter student is a student not living in any of the University-owned properties.  Commuter students either live at home with parents/guardians or in an apartment close to campus.  NC State recognizes commuter students as an essential part of the university community.

Active involvement in campus life is a vital component of a successful college experience. NC State prides itself in providing a wide range of out-of-the classroom opportunities enabling ALL students to have a fulfilled and meaningful experience while at NC State.

Campus Connections for Commuters is a list of resources identified for commuting students.  Parents can provide this information to help their student better understand the opportunities and connections available for NC State students get the most out of their college experience.
