About iCommuteiCommute logo lockup

iCommute is a program designed to eliminate the stigma surrounding commuter student engagement by providing advice and resources for student success. Simply, commuter students are involved students, no matter where they reside or how long their commute is. Supported by various campus partners, commuter students are a valuable part of our Wright State community.

Security Tips for Commuters

When parking your car on campus, remember to practice the following tips:

  • Never leave your windows open.
  • Always keep your doors locked.
  • Keep valuable items at home or on your person. If you must leave them in your vehicle, lock them in the trunk.
  • Keep the inside of your car as clutter-free as possible (do not leave textbooks or anything that might give a thief the slightest temptation to break into your vehicle).
  • Secure your registration and insurance card on your person or in a secure, hidden place inside the vehicle. Never leave valuable documents in your car that could help a thief identify who you are or where you live.

Visit the Department of Public Safety website for more safety tips. Your auto insurance agency may have additional suggestions to offer as well.

If you ever feel uncomfortable walking to or from your car, regardless of the time of day, contact Public Safety for a Safety Escort at 937-775-2111. It is better to be cautious now than to have regrets later. Furthermore, try to park in areas that are well lit or in lots close to buildings or high traffic areas.

Study Places

There are several locations around campus that are perfect places to study. Favorites often include:

  • The first floor of Millett near the Culture and Identity Centers
  • The first floor of Rike Hall
  • The first floor of Oelman Hall
  • The first floor of Fawcett Hall
  • Student Union
  • Student Success Center
  • Dunbar Library*

* Please check the library schedule, to determine the hours of operation. Library hours of operation change during finals week and breaks (e.g., during December and over the summer months).

Campus Dining and Dining Plans

Whether you are on campus all day or spend just a few hours on campus each week, you might find yourself wanting something to eat. Dining Services at Wright State has worked hard to meet commuter student’s tastes, budgets, and needs for convenience. There are many ever-changing new additions to the already wide variety of dining options on campus.

Meal Plans

Dining Dollars are available to commuter students, residential students in apartments, and all campus employees. Dining Dollars are also available to residential students wishing to supplement their required Residential Dining Plan. 

Dining Dollars are available in increments of $50, $100, $250, or $500 and come with a bonus of $5 for every $50 purchased. Dining Dollars begin for students the weekend before the semester begins. Unused Dining Dollars on all plans roll or carry over from Fall Semester to Spring Semester. Any unused Dining Dollars at the end of Spring Semester are forfeited. There is no carryover from spring to any future semester. Be sure to use all of your Dining Dollars to get the most value from your dining plan. No refunds will be issued for Dining Dollars.

Employee Dining Dollars will be available for purchase through WINGS Express beginning August 1. See WINGS Express for details on Employee Dining Dollars.
