The Miami University Carruthers Commuter Resource Center, located in 2045 Armstrong Student Center, serves as a resource for students who commute to school from Oxford or the surrounding area. The center is located on the second floor, near the Community Lounge and Kitchen. 

The Commuter Resource Center strives to promote an environment that is welcoming and conducive to community building and academic achievement. In addition to a friendly atmosphere, the Center provides a variety of services and resources, including a charging station, lockers, and comfortable seating. It also serves as the meeting space for Miami's Commuters of Miami during the academic year.

Commuter Center Assistants

Commuter Center Assistants (CCAs) staff the center between 15 and 20 hours a week. In addition to providing oversight and making improvements to the center, they register students for the free lockers, answer questions, and plan programs. Fall 2019 hours will be posted in August. 

The Commuter Center offers free lockers to all students. You must request access and use a lock provided by the Off-Campus Outreach (112A Warfield Hall). Students can use the locker for the entire semester and can re-check out a locker for each semester they are enrolled in school. If a locker is not cleaned out by the end of the semester students are responsible for a $25 fee for having the lock removed.
