Vic Commuter Dons aim to provide you with the same kind of support that is available to residence students from their dons. You can think of us as upper year student mentors or facilitators who are available to help you with personal, academic, financial or social matters, as well as connect you to university resources.

Also, we are commuters too and have experienced first-hand the struggles of commuting (traveling to and from campus every day). This means that you can come talk to us about anything! Whether you are having difficulty adjusting to university life or simply want to chat and connect…please stop by! We would love to see you at our weekly events and/or during our office hours in the Goldring Student Centre. We are here for you and hope to create a campus environment that is commuter-friendly.

We look forward to meeting you!
