The lounge features WIFI, tables, couches, vending machines, Campus Television and advertising about commuter events. Many Commuter Club events are also hosted in the lounge.

There is no cost for using a locker and the “rental” includes a lock. Lockers for commuters are located in the Griffin’s Den in Fournier Hall. Lockers are available on a first- come, first-served basis.
