Cincinnati Christian University’s urban location means that we have a higher commuter rate than many Christian colleges. All students who reside within the I-275 loop are permitted to live at home, but are also welcome to live on campus. For those who choose to commute, we offer a variety of programs and services.
If you’re looking for a place to hang out between classes, look no further! Located on the bottom floor of the Crouch Building, the CCU Commuter Lounge is a space dedicated specifically for your use. There you will find lounge spaces, study spaces, public computers, a TV, and a kitchen (including a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, coffee pot, and Keurig). The Commuter Lounge is the perfect place to socialize, study, or eat lunch.
