CWRU Commuter Lounge
The CWRU Commuter Lounge, located on the foundation level of Thwing Center West, offers commuters a place to socialize and study. Just like home, the lounge is divided into a variety of living areas including a TV room, a game room with a Ping-Pong table and pool table, two study rooms, and a kitchenette with a sink, microwave, and refrigerator.
The lounge also has a computer to check email or work on homework and projects. Equipment use is based on a first-come-first-served basis, and students are asked to limit their use since the machine is shared. Restrooms are located above the lounge on the first floor of Thwing Center
The Office of Commuter Services and the Commuter Club also are located in the lounge, and events and activities are hosted there. Restrooms are located above the lounge on the first floor of Thwing Center.
Access to the Lounge
Students must use their ID/swipe cards to enter the lounge. New commuter students and those students experiencing problems accessing the lounge can obtain card access by stopping by the office of Thwing Center Administration in 281 Thwing Center, Monday though Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please contact Stephen Toth for more information.
During the fall and spring semesters, the lounge is open Monday through Friday.
The lounge contains 50 lockers. Students can sign up for a locker the first week of classes by contacting Stephen Toth. Students will be given a locker and must provide their own lock. They will also be asked to sign a locker contract. Locker contents and locks must be emptied by the last day of each semester. Unclaimed locks and the contents of those lockers will be removed. Those students not complying with the locker contract will be asked to provide a $20 deposit for all subsequent locker use. Day lockers also are available at the entrance to Kelvin Smith Library.
Lounge equipment is shared by all commuters. Please be courteous to others by taking care of the equipment. Equipment that is broken or lost may or may not be replaced until the following semester.
Commuters may bring Case residential students and off-campus guests to the lounge, but they are expected to remain in the lounge with their guests. Guests are responsible for any damage they incur while using the lounge.
