At Wheelock, we realize that our commuter population is an integral part of our community. Approximately 30 percent of our undergraduate student population is composed of students commuting to and from Wheelock. Commuter students are encouraged to take an active role in the community not just through their classes, but also by by participating in Wheelock's various student clubs and organizations, student events, athletic teams, and by taking on leadership roles.
Our newly renovated Commuter Lounge, located in the Garden Level of the Classroom Building, offers a comfortable space to socialize, study, eat, or just recharge your mobile devices between classes.
Commuter Council is an organization designed to encourage spirit among the entire group of commuters and to ensure that the commuter voice is heard on campus. Commuter Council creates, plans, and facilitates events on- and off-campus that offer commuters the opportunity to get to know one another. There are also many opportunities to engage in camaraderie with the residents on campus.
Commuter lockers are located next to the Commuter Lounge in the Classroom Building. Commuting students may choose a locker to occupy for the entire academic year. You can sign-up for your locker and receive an approved padlock from the Student Life Office.
All undergraduate commuters are assigned an on-campus student mailbox. These mailboxes are located in the Student Center. Commuters may pick up their on campus mailbox keys from the Office of Residence Life at the beginning of each semester. Students are strongly encouraged to check their on-campus mail, as many important documents are sent to their on-campus mailboxes as opposed to their home address.
Commuting students may put money onto their Wheelock ID card through dining services for use at the Campus Center Dining Hall or The Longfellow Cafe and Coffee Bar. Money is then deducted from the deposited balance with each use. For information on dining hall and cafe hours of operation or menu options, visit the Dining Services website.
Wheelock College is conveniently located just a block away from the Fenway T stop on the Green Line. For a map and schedule of the T, visit the MBTA's website. Each semester, students may purchase a discounted monthly T-Pass through the Student Life Office.
Due to limited parking spaces on campus, students are not permitted to park in any of the on-campus lots unless they have purchased a parking permit. Students with permits may only park on campus between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Visit the Campus Services web page for current parking permit costs and restrictions.
Students may also take advantage of the numerous parking and transportation options available through MASCO, of which Wheelock is a part. For information on parking and shuttle bus services, visit MASCO's website.
