Just over 50% of freshmen live on campus at Goldey-Beacom College, and many of them are from the local area. Just under 50% commute from home, and are a vital part of the Goldey-Beacom family. Our commuter students have access to all the same services and student activities as residential students, and find ample opportunity to make friends with residential students and fellow commuters alike.
Unlike many college campuses, Goldey-Beacom offers free parking for all students. Study spaces abound across campus, both indoors and out, for time between classes. A newly-expanded and newly-equipped fitness center is available for use by all students, and newly-expanded dining facilities offer the opportunity to remain on campus through meal time. Commuter students can even opt for the same meal plans available to residential students, so they may enjoy the same meal discounts! All that’s missing for commuter students is a bed on campus—unless you count the couches in the student lounge areas.
If you are considering a college close to home, Goldey-Beacom is a great choice. Convenient to Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, this Delaware college provides a welcoming environment for students choosing to live at home, as well as students choosing to live on campus. Our affordable cost makes us a sensible choice, and our proximity to home makes us a comfortable choice. You live so close, you should drive by and check us out!
