Commuter Students

Commuter Student Services

We realize that our commuter students are on the go. At Canisius, the Commuter Student Association (CSA) is your campus connection. CSA encourages campus involvement and provides a variety of programs and services to foster a sense of community.

If you have any questions or concerns, stop by the CSA club room in the tunnel level of the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center, Room WC07 or email us at @email.

Whether you ride a bike, take the metro, or drive a car to campus, we have you covered.

Commuter Lounge
The commuter lounge is located in the tunnel level of the Richard E. Winter '42 Student Center.  It is open to any student looking for a place to relax and hang out with friends between classes and meetings.  There are two televisions, lots of comfortable couches, many computers, and magazines for student use.

Commuter students may sign out lockers at no charge for the duration of the school year.  All lockers are located in the tunnel level of the Richard E. Winter '42 Student Center.  Lockers may be reserved in the Office of Event Services beginning on the first day of classes.

NFTA Program
The Undergraduate Student Association (USA) now distributes monthly NFTA CRAM Pass on an as needed basis. You may contact the USA or The Center for Student Engagement and Leadership Development at 716-888-2190 for additional information.
Motorist Assistance Program
The motorist assistance program assists students, faculty and staff if your keys are locked inside the vehicle, you need gas, air for low tires or a jump start.  Public Safety Officers will also call your auto club and wait with you if you are in a deserted area late at night.  Just call Public Safety at 716-888-2330 for assistance.
