Commuter Student Services

Buena Vista University's Commuter Student Services program enhances the overall student experience both in and out of the classroom for all commuter students. We provide commuter students the opportunity to get involved in the BVU community, which fosters a sense of pride and success.

Commuter Lockers

Commuter students have access to a locker, in which they can store their belongings in Siebens Forum and Dixon-Eilers Hall. Students can request a locker in an area most convenient for them and pick up the key in the Office for Student Success. Locker keys must be turned in at the end of the academic year or when the student no longer requires the use of a locker. Students will be charged $25 per key that is not returned to the Office for Student Success.
