I've heard we have more students living on campus than FSU. Are the majority of most students at large schools commuters?

Technically, if you live on 42nd street right by campus, that's off campus.  And yet, you could walk to class still.  I guess the difference is the atmosphere on campus is different if a lot of people live on it, but I don't see the big difference between on-campus and "commuter."

Last I heard, though, we do have more living on campus than FSU, but they have a lot of nearby apartments as well.

I think USF has about 5200 dorm beds on Tampa campus, FSU has around 6100.

I do not know about the other Universities, but I do know that at ours we have 5,500 beds on campus. Yet if you would count our "Commuter Students" 95% of them live within a 1.5 mile radius of the campus. So alot of the students live right on by USF

No way, sorry, but we are the 9th largest university in the country.  There is no way 95% live within 1.5 miles.  I would say you have maybe 50% in that range of the Tampa campus at best. 

We also do not have students who stay on campus, they take class and leave.

The figure is 95% live within FIVE miles of one of USF's campuses... which was true as recent as earlier this decade.

The students who live in apartments right next to campus are considered by the University as "Commuter Residents"

I don't but the 95% aren't 10% of our ungraded student. Part-time commuters?

5 miles or less is hardly a commute.
