UMW Commuter Student Services is committed to helping those who live off-campus have a successful experience at University of Mary Washington. We are dedicated to helping commuters feel connected and supported. Our programs and services are designed to provide you with opportunities to meet other UMW commuters, be informed of campus events, make connections with campus units, staff and faculty, and have a resource when you have questions about off-campus living.

We recognize that commuters come from all different walks of life. Some live at home, some are taking a class or two that interests them, and some are even returning to school after establishing a career. The Office of Commuter Student Services is here for ALL of YOU, and we want you to hear all your concerns. Please email Jessica DeMers at jdemers@umw.edu or Chris Porter at cjporter@umw.edu with any questions, comments, or suggestions!
