Commuter Student Support

Commuter Student Support

This is an entirely NEW page created as of June 2016. It was developed intentionally in supporting our Commuter Students. Additionally, the carousel pictures at the top of this page are of the NEW Commuter Student Lounge - another deliberate enhancement to the Commuter Student experience here at Mansfield University.

ENJOY the Commuter Student Lounge in the Alumni Hall Student Center (AHSC) across from the Mountie Den (Bookstore) and next to the Information Booth. Some of the amenities included in the space are a flat-screen television, two micro-fridges, a coffee pot and a toaster.
