Commuting Students Network

  • Travel icons in row background


The Commuting Students Network was started because we wanted to find a way to link commuters with other students who may share similar circumstances, and who don't always find it easy to immerse themselves in university life because of their outside commitments. We host Commuter Network get-together events monthly, holding them on different days and at different times to try and make them accessible to as many people as possible. The idea of these events is to give commuters a chance to meet face to face and build up friendships all across the university.


We also have our very own Commuter Network Lounge, with homely facilities designed to give commuting students a 'home from home'. The Lounge is situated near next to Alwyn Car Park, about two minutes from the Kenneth Kettle Building. We have comfy sofas, dining table, microwave and fridge, shower, lockers, network PCs and printer. We have a strong and growing membership who support each other in person and through our members-only Facebook page. The Lounge is also open to students who are both mature and part time, even if they live less than 5 miles away (please note you must be both mature and part time to be eligible).

We look forward to meeting you very soon!  




Once you have purchased your membership online, we will need to verify your membership and email you when you are able to get swipe card access to the Lounge. Please note this process may take up to a week, we appreciate your patience.


Once you recieve this email, you will be able to take your student card to The Cottage or St. Swithun's Lodge reception (both buildings are opposite Burma Road halls and the gym) to activate your student card for access to the Lounge.
