Commuter & Transfer Commons

A dedicated space in the HUB providing services to students who commute or have transferred to the UW.

The Commuter & Transfer Commons (CTC) also arranges events throughout the year to build community among students who live off-campus. We are ready to welcome you to the Husky Union Building in person. Please note, you will need a Husky ID Card to swipe your ID to enter the space.

Our Resources

Kitchenette

Keep your lunch cold or heat it up in our kitchenette! For day-use, we have a fridge, microwaves, hot water dispenser and toaster!

 

Day Use Lockers

Store your heavy books and backpack in our lockers. Space is big enough to fit a bike helmet and/or motorcycle helmet. Lockers are day-use check out only and are offered on a first-come first-serve basis but commuter and transfer students have priority. HUB offers long-term locker rentals.

Changing Room & Lactation Station

This private room has a chair, table, mini-fridge, soft lighting, a hand-washing station, and power adapters. The station provides a clean and private alternative to using a bathroom or other public space. Use of this space is possible on days when the CTC is closed — check in with the HUB front desk for access.
