Important Resources for Commuter Students

Ways to Get Involved

Every Commuter should check out their OrgSync page. Simply go to, select the Pace University Pleasantville campus and use your user name and password to log in! Here you can browse the different Student Organizations on campus and join the organizations to learn more about when the group has their weekly meeting, who the president and advisor are for the group, and when events are taking place. There is even a Commuter organization on campus called the Commuter Advisory Board (CAB). They are always looking for new members to help make the Commuter life experience a great one! Check out CAB's OrgSync page.

All Commuters can also visit the Student Development & Campus Activities Office to learn more about how they can get involved on campus. If you want to set up a meeting, you can contact Christine Bogulaski at or call 914-773-3767.

Where to Hangout or Study

Commuters are welcome to hang out or study anywhere on campus – in the Kessel Student Center, the Mortola Library, the academic buildings, and even the Residence Halls - as long as you are with a friend who lives in the hall. The Kessel Student Center is home of the Boudreau Student Lounge where students can eat, study, watch TV, or just relax! The Mortola library is often a second home for commuter students. The library is a great study space to go to between classes. The computer lab in Willcox is also a great space to visit if you do not want to bring a computer to school with you and are looking for a place to do late night studying. Explore all the possibilities and find your place away from home!


ALL first-year Commuters are a part of a First-Year Interest Group (FIG) on campus. These interest groups help build community around a common interest. Throughout the year, students will be welcome to join programming on campus, both inside and outside the residence halls, as well as taking trips off campus. Check out what each of the FIGs have to offer here, including where the FIG lounges is located and which staff members oversee each FIG!  Have questions about your FIG? Reach out to the Resident Director overseeing your FIG or Christine Bogulaski. 

Getting a Parking Pass
All commuter students need to get a commuter parking pass for their car(s). You can pick up the pass in the Security office on campus.

Signing up for PaceAlert
All commuter students should register their BEST contact information (email & phone) on the PaceAlert website. This is how students are notified of Weather Cancellations and Campus Emergencies. If you do not check your email often, it is best to register your cell phone to receive the text message alerts.
