Commuter Services

We want commuters to get involved in the Providence community! Some great ways to do that include playing on the varsity team, cheering on the Pilots, participating in a music group, joining a student council committee, playing intramurals or signing up for special events through the year. Commuter students also have a carpool database available to them and special access to the Collegium which is a member-only lounge ($30 fee) specifically for University College commuter students. This modern lounge includes a kitchen area complete with a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and kettle, as well as dishes and cutlery. It also has several leather couches, perfect for relaxing or reading.

Please see the STUCO Commuter Representative or the Dean of Student Life with any questions or concerns you may have.


  1. Manitoba laws governing the use of vehicles shall apply on Providence property.
  2. The speed limit is 30 km/h on campus.
  3. Other than in an emergency, repairs should not be done on campus.


At the beginning of each semester we host a carpool meeting where you can get information about being a part of a carpool, should you be interested.

Winter Driving

Winters in Manitoba can be dangerous and we want you to be prepared!

  • Maintenance your vehicle: snow/ice tires, winter oil, full tank of gas, gas line anti-freeze
  • Pack some emergency supplies: booster cables, extra clothing, blanket, snacks, candle, phone
  • Plan ahead: stranded commuter students are encouraged to make arrangements with fellow students or Residents Assistants to stay in residences overnight in case of a winter storm.
