As a commuter, is it possible to be involved in extracurricular activities?

Of course! Many commuter students are quite involved in an array of student organizations and activities in Greek life, student government, intramurals, service groups, etc. Assess your interests, talk to classmates, and visit campus departments to learn more about opportunities to get involved.  For questions about activities and leadership, please contact Pete Lafferty, Community Coordinator for Leadership Development at (215) 951-1669 or at: lafferty@lasalle.edu. The possibilities are endless!

Between classes, I don’t have any place to unwind or study. Are there designated spaces on campus for commuter students?

Yes, we have two commuter spaces located in the Union building. The Commuter Lounge (Lower Level of the Union) is the central gathering space for many commuters. There are numerous tables to socialize around and study, lockers available for rent (See Administrative Services for more details), a pool table, and plenty of activities throughout the semester to partake in. The Commuter TV Lounge (1st floor across the Dan Rodden Theater) is a great place to study or catch up on your favorite TV show. You will often find other commuters in the space relaxing between classes or dining.

I am a local landlord/property manager interested in adverting my listing to La Salle Students. How do I begin this process?  May I post my flyers around campus?

You can submit details of your property by simply clicking on the “Landlords” tab of this website. You will need to accept the prompted statement before proceeding to the database entry form. Once your listing is approved, the property will become a part of the internal database that is shared with students that have expressed interest in Off-Campus Housing options.  Flyers regarding properties may NOT be posted around campus.  If flyers are found posted on campus, your online listing will be pulled from the database.

For more information, please contact us at 215-951-1916 or at offcampusliving@lasalle.edu
