Commuter Services

Commuter students are an active and important part of the Mount community. Programs and services offered through our office are available to all full-time traditional undergraduate students. The following information is provided to keep commuter students informed of services and activities on campus:

Doheny Commuter Services

Doheny Commuter Services serves as the primary liaison between commuter students and the university. We also sponsor events for commuter students and provide information on community resources and off-campus housing. Our office is located in Building 7. The Commuter Services Staff looks forward to meeting you and serving you during your time at Mount Saint Mary’s University.

Commuter Lounge: Located in the Wigwam near Ahmanson Weingart Hall (Building 4), amenities include couches, desks, tables, a pool table, refrigerator, microwave, television, computers with internet access, and access to the Fitness Center.

Computer Access: In addition to the computers available in the Wigwam, computers with internet access are also available in Building 3 and the Library.

Informational Bulletin Boards: Information regarding MSMU’s Commuter Services can be found on bulletin boards located in the Wigam and 1st Floor of Ahmanson Weingart Hall (Building 4) and on kiosks located throughout the campus.

Lockers: Lockers are available for commuter students at no charge. Students are able to use their locker for the entire academic year, and all items must be removed by the last day of the Spring semester. Any items left in lockers after this deadline will be discarded. Please visit Building 7 to sign up for a locker.

Meals: Commuter students can save money by purchasing a meal plan. There are four meal plan options and plans can be purchased online at, or at the food services office located in Ahmanson Commons 2nd Floor.

Student Carpool: For those who are environmentally conscious and looking to save on the cost of gas, we have a student carpool program available. Commuter students can register to participate in the carpool program in the Transportation Office (next to the Wigwam).  There is a parking permit rebate for students who participate in this program. 

Study/Gathering Areas: The campus offers a number of gathering and study areas for commuter students. Locations include the Wigwam, Library, Ahmanson Commons (open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week) and the 24-Hour Room (located next to the Library).
