Commuter Services

Iona is committed to ensuring commuter students get the services and resources they need to have a full and successful college experience.

We understand that as a commuter, you probably have obligations off-campus. We want to make it easy for you to balance those obligations with your life as a student.

From meal plans – so that you stay nourished and healthy, to lockers – so you don’t have to carry books back and forth every day, we’ve got you covered!

Meal Plans

As a commuter student, the easiest way to make sure you are staying nourished is to participate in one of our optional Off-Campus and Commuter Student Meal Plans. We have great dining options with a wide variety of choices both on and off-campus.

Commuter Community

As a freshman commuter, you will be paired with a Commuter Assistant – a returning commuter student who will help you transition into college by addressing your needs and concerns about college life, answering questions, and supporting you throughout your first-year! You can also join our Commuter Student Association to meet and share with other commuter students!
