Students who live off-campus with family members, both within the Bowling Green City limits as well as students who live outside of BG, are considered commuter students. As a commuter student, you have a unique set of needs and challenges that accompany the benefits of living at home with family.

The resources found on this website and the programs and support provided through Off-Campus Student Services should help you to navigate your way to success at BGSU.

One place you’ll spend most of your time is in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. In particular, the Hazel H. Smith Off-Campus Lounge, located on the 2nd floor, is convenient for commuter students who are in need of access to computer and printing services, the BGSU Bookstore, and Falcon’s Nest food court. The Lounge includes lockers, a kitchenette, email stations, and comfortable seating to study, rest, or visit with friends.
