Commuting students are an integral part of Fisher College's student life. All events, organizations, and clubs are open to commuters. The Division of Student Life strongly encourages these students to actively participate in College activities and to make good use of all the services provided (e.g. counseling, health services, etc.). To make their transition easier, the College offers the following services:
A Commuter Liaison is available to provide support to commuter students and to help them navigate College life. The Commuter Liaison advises the Commuter Student Association, which facilitates connections between commuters and gives commuter students a forum through which to express their concerns. Commuter luncheons also take place once a month. You may reach the Commuter Liaison at 617-670-4421, or stop by the Dean of Students' Office on the Mall.
Fisher College is easily accessible by public transportation. We are located near the Arlington Street T-stop. Subway, bus, and commuter rail discount passes are available from the Office of Housing and Residential Life.
Parking is not available on College property; however, Beacon Street and the surrounding areas do have metered parking on the street. Two large parking garages are within walking distance.
Each commuter student is issued a campus mailbox located in the Mall area. Announcements, updates, and official correspondence from the College are put in the mailboxes. Combinations are available at the Office of Housing and Residential Life, 617-236-8828.
Lockers are available from the Housing Office for $30 per year or $15 per semester. Small lockers are available for $10 a semester. There is a $10 additional charge if the locker key and lock are not returned.
Students living off campus must file a local home address with the Registrar's Office upon arrival at the College and should notify the Registrar's Office of changes in this information.
