Commuting to CNR

Students chatting in loungeCommuter students are vital members of our College Community. Through the website, mailings, and regularly scheduled activities, the Office of Student Activities helps commuters acclimate to life at CNR.

To ensure involvement, we offer a number of programs and services that help commuters in the School of Arts & Sciences and School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions stay connected.

What programs and services are available to commuters?

Activities are a big part of Commuter Life! The Office of Student Activities works hard to provide relevant and fun activities to keep commuter students engaged. Commuter Pick Me Ups, Commuter Grab & Go's and Commuter Appreciation Day are just some of the events that Student Activities and the Student Government Association offer commuters.

For more information about activities or to suggest a commuter-friendly event contact the Office of Student Activities and Leadership at (914) 654-5488 or by email at You may also view the College calendar for a month-by-month view of events, trips and other activities.

Auxiliary Accounts allow you to place money in an account that can be accessed via your CNR ID. This account can be used card to purchase food in the Café tax-free, as well as in various vending machines, the print shop, book store, and mail room. To open an Auxiliary Services Account, contact the Bursar's Office via mail or telephone. Payment for the account must be separate from tuition payments. In addition, the account can be created for you by contacting Security.

Bulletin Boards maintained by Student Services staff are located on the 1st and 2nd floors of the Sweeny Student Center. They contain updated information about events and local happenings. In addition, feel free to peruse the various postings on bulletin boards in the student lounge of the Mooney Center as well as elsewhere around campus.

Campus Mailboxes are available upon request. They are located across from the bookstore on the lower level of the Sweeny Student Center. Contact the Mail Center at (914) 654-5483 to sign up!

Living on Campus: If you decide you want to live on campus, please contact

Lockers: Don't feel like dragging your books back and forth from home? Lockers are available in the basement of the Mooney Center to allow commuters to store textbooks, clothing, or other items. You must provide your own lock. For more information call (914) 654-5862.

Lounges are located on the first floor of the Mooney Center, the second floor of the Sweeny Student Center, and in the Library Café. They provide vending and comfortable seating for commuter students who are in between classes, waiting for a ride, or just need a moment to unwind.

Parking Tags, which allow you to park in one of the College's three parking lots, are available to commuter students through the Security Office for $10 per year. Pick up your tag before you park to ensure you will not be ticketed. If you choose to park on local city streets, please be sure to read the posted signage regarding City of New Rochelle parking regulations.
