University of Minnesota Commuter Connection

The Commuter Connection is a part of Off-Campus Living at the University of Minnesota. We work to provide resources for commuter students.

The Commuter Connection provides a welcoming environment for any student to socialize, and express any concerns or needs. In our room we have a variety of resources for students such as printing, fridge space and microwaves. We also organize events and activities for commuter students throughout the University. Times listed are general hours as the Commuter Connection is open when officers are available
