Depending on the number of credits you have, you may be assigned different lots. Registration begins every semester in the beginning. Be sure to register your vehicle on ISIS as well as upate housing information. The University Police will instruct you with where and when to park. If you have a motorcycle, keep in mind there are certain spots available for these vehicles as well.
Click here for a copy of the color coded lots on campus as well as the Guide to Parking on Campus. Be sure to park only in your spot. Parking in another spot on campus may result in multiple tickets being placed against your vehicle.
Any specific questions regarding parking or vehicles on campus should be directed straight to The University Police. Their phone number is (570) 389-4168. You may also want to look at the information posted to the Bloomsburg University website for general information or frequently asked questions regarding parking.
This is a good question. Certainly, your safety is the University's primary responsibility when it comes to bad weather. Chances are, if you are commuting to Bloomsburg, you know very well how bad that weather can be. As a commuter student, it is your responsibility to have that communication with your professor. Make him/her aware that you are traveling from a distance and try to engage in some form of communication for when you won't be in class. Keep your syllabi handy so you can contact your professors whenever you need to!
Your ID card functions as many useful tools as a student at BU. This will track your meals (if you decide you want a meal plan), give you access to the student recreation center, allow you to borrow a book from the library, and give you access to the library's resources from home. Aside from that, your ID can hold your Husky Gold in case you don't want to carry money to campus.
You will be given the opportunity to get your picture taken for your ID during Orientation. If you miss this date, you can stop by the Residence Life Office during normal business hours. They're located in the ground floor of Elwell. Try your best not to lose your ID. They cost $20 to be replaced!
Currently, there are 5 dining facilities to choose from on campus.
Meal plans are something for you to decide. Some students find that a meal plan is helpful especially when they need something to do in between class. Others find it difficult to use all the meals in the amount of time. Be sure to check out this link to view the different meal plans and find out which one works for you.
Bloomsburg University has many clubs, organizations, sports and religious groups that you may be interested in joining. BU prides itself in having a diverse amount of ways for you to feel like you belong to the campus community. Find your niche and get involved!
You can meet people everywhere on campus including class or in a club/organization!!! However, the best place to meet other commuters is in the Commuter Lounge (located in the ground floor of the Warren Student Services Center). The Commuter Lounge is a resource for you to learn how to get involved as well as meet other people who commute to college.
