Commuter Resources

Welcome to Commuter Resources at Suffolk University! Our Commuter Ambassadors' goals are to help students who commute to campus to have an engaging and enriching Suffolk experience.

If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about the commuter student experience at Suffolk, follow us on Instagram @suffolkcommuters.


Samia Academic Center at 20 Somerset Street

This building not only provides science labs and classrooms on the upper floors, but many classrooms on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors and basement level as well. There are small lounges for student use on each floor and the lively Smith cafeteria on the basement level.

Sawyer Building at 8 Ashburton Place

The Sawyer Building has relaxing and lively student lounges on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors with food service on the 2nd floor next to the lounge. This space is a great social space along with the 3rd floor which houses student clubs and organizations, the Student Leadership and Involvement Office, and Performing Arts Office. The 4th floor lounge is a quieter study lounge. The Veteran's Lounge is on the 9th floor.

Commuter Student Lounge at 73 Tremont

Located on the first floor of 73 Tremont down the hall to the left of the elevators. Here you can find a fridge, lockers, microwave, and tables and chairs to relax or get work done.


Commuter Appreciation Week

Several times each semester, events specifically designed for commuter students will help you meet your classmates and enjoy a break from classes.


Commuter Ambassadors

Our CA team is an experienced Suffolk University student who is a key member of the Office. The Commuter Ambassador helps first-year students transition to college life and mentors students who commute to campus.

Free Lockers

Store your books and other school supplies on campus. Lockers can be located in the 150 Tremont first-floor hallway on the left (Commuter Student Lounge). These lockers are for single time use and are on a first come first serve basis. If you would like a more permanent locker more locker information is available at the department of facilities. Contact them at 617-573-8110. Locker information for Law Students can be found in the Law School.

RAM Account

The Ram Account is a stored value/debit account linked to your Ram card, which is your Suffolk ID. Ram Account funds can be used at all participating on- and off-campus locations, and they are available as long as you are an active member of the Suffolk community—commuter and resident students, faculty, and staff. Students and parents can now add funds to the Ram Account. For more information, email us or call the Student Account/Ram Card Services at 617-573-8407.

Discounted MBTA Semester Passes

By purchasing a semester t-pass through Suffolk, you can save 11% percent when compared to purchasing a monthly pass directly through the MBTA.
