Welcome Adult and Commuter Students

As a commuter and/or adult student, it can be difficult to feel a sense of community within UNCG. Commuting from home or living off campus can be quite a different experience from living in a residence hall. With classes spread all over the day, commuting time, demands of family, or roommates and work,  many commuter and off-campus living students have more responsibilities to juggle and smaller periods of time to spend with friends.

The Office of Campus Activities and Programs (CAP) understands these concerns with our commuters and offers a number of Daytime programs and services that provide opportunities for commuters to meet other students and feel connected to UNCG.  Visit our Programs link for information and check the calendar for event dates.

Keep an eye out for our weekly e-newsletters, containing information and events specifically for Daytime Programming. These programs are designed between the hours of 11AM-2PM with a drop-in atmosphere so you can fit them into your schedule. Past programs have included Stuff-A-Plush, Design On Wheels painting sessions, food truck rodeos, and more!

There are lots of resources and tips for success for adult and commuter students.  Check out the Weather and Commuter Safety Concerns, and Parking & Transportation pages.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to visit our office. CAP is located on the second floor of the Elliott University Center (EUC) between rooms 236 & 238.  You can also call us at 336-334-5800 or send an email to capso@uncg.edu.
