Commuting to Campus? Learn more about Off Campus and Commuter Student Services

Whether you are living near campus or commuting in from the greater Cleveland area, you are among the almost 2000 CWRU undergraduate students who live off campus.

You don’t have to live on campus to be a significant part of the Case Western Reserve University community. There are many ways to engage with fellow Spartans and make your time on campus productive, meaningful and fun!

Off Campus and Commuter Student Services, through the Office of Thwing Center Engagement and Operations, offers resources and helpful information to support the off-campus and commuter student experience. 

They are committed to supporting you during your time at CWRU. Don't hesitate to reach out to them at if you have any questions or concerns.

As a new commuter student, Discover Days is required just as it is for residential students. 

Please note: In order to be eligible for commuter status, you must be living in the permanent home of a parent within 40 miles of CWRU. You will be required to submit a letter or have the parent sign your release request. If your parent(s) move more than 40 miles from campus, you will be required to return to campus housing. Submit a Housing Release Request form found on the room selection website.
