Commuter Lounges & Resources

Suzie's Commuter Lounge

Located in Rothwell Center, right off Adams Plaza, the Commuter Lounge provides a space for the Mills community to come together. The lounge is staffed by the commuter community assistant from the Office of Student Activities who oversees the space, organizes occasional social activities, and updates the commuter resource information. It's a great place to rest and recharge between classes with comfortable, overstuffed chairs and couches as well as a television.

Commuter Resources

The following services are designed especially for commuters. Just fill out the Lounge Agreement Form (login required) and pick up a key from HMDS to take advantage of these great resources. For more information about commuter resources email


The kitchen is located in the Student Union, adjacent to Suzie's Commuter Lounge. The kitchen includes a microwave, stove, oven, refrigerator, and other small appliances for your use.


Lockers are located in the space right outside the Commuter Kitchen. These lockers are free of charge and are issued on a semester basis by the commuter community assistant. Since there are limited lockers, you will be encouraged to share. Lockers are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Come to Rothwell 158 for more information.

Computer Lab

The lab is a quiet space close to the other commuter resources for you to stop in and check your email, finish up a paper before a class, or do some Internet research. It includes a black and white printer, along with one Mac and one PC computer. 

Guest Rooms

If you need to stay on campus overnight because of an event, mid-term, or final, you can book a guest room for a fee. Rooms can be reserved in advance through Housing Management and Dining Services at 510.430.2127.
