Commuter Services


Commuter Student Association

The Commuter Student Association is dedicated to providing Whittier College commuter students with opportunities for unity and voice on campus, as well as scholarly support, social enrichment, and encouragement to participate fully in their college experience.

Off-Campus (Commuter) Representatives

To maintain communication between commuter students and the College, the Student Senate (ASWC) has three Off-Campus (Commuter) Representative positions. Commissioners meet with constituents to discuss commuter-related issues with the Senate and administration.

Public Transportation Resources

Whittier College and the surrounding neighborhood are served by two main public transportation systems: Metro and Montebello Bus Lines. Public transportation maps are available at the Office of Student Engagement, located within the Campus Center. 

Locker Reservations

There are 100 campus lockers available, free of charge, to commuter students in the Campus Center courtyard, courtesy of ASWC. To reserve a locker, visit the ASWC office.
