The Commuter and Veterans Lounge

The new Commuter and Veterans Lounge on the ground floor of University Commons gives commuting students, as well as those who have served in the armed forces or are in the reserves, a place to relax, study or converse with classmates.

Carlow University has been a military-friendly institution since the Sisters of Mercy opened their doors to soldiers returning home after World War II. Those veterans, eager to use their GI Bill benefits to earn a college education, were the first men to attend classes at Carlow. Through the years, Carlow has been proud to support the men and women who serve our nation, and that tradition continues today with the creation of this lounge.

The Commuter and Veterans Lounge was generously funded through a gift by John Laubach Jr. and Suzanne Laubach.
