Rideshare Program

There is a rideshare feature on Bruin Boards, which is also accessible through MyGeorgeFox. You can also use the “GFU Class of” pages on Facebook to post where you might need a ride or if you can give a ride. Parking permits are also available to students.

Student Handbook

The Undergraduate Student Handbook applies to all undergraduate students, even if you live off campus. Commuters frequently overlook alcohol and chapel policies. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with these as they apply to you.

Conversation Starters Form

We highly encourage you and your housemates/roommates to have a conversation about chores, guests, sharing food, and the like. Forms to aid these conversations are sent to your campus mailbox the first week of classes. Please make time for a conversation with your housemates.
