Off-Campus Life offers an array of programs and services to support living on your own.

Semester Locker Rentals

Heavy books? Don’t want to lug your stuff around all day, everyday? Come rent a locker for a semester or more in the Lory Student Center at Off-Campus Life! You can access your locker anytime during our normal business hours Monday through Friday and selected weekend hours.

Roommate Round-Up

Roommate Round-Up

This program is designed to bring together people who have places and are looking for roommates as well as people who need a place and want to be someone's roommate. At the Roommate Roundup, OCL staff present a quick overview of the services we provide through our office and talk about good roommate practices. Potential roommates then have the opportunity to introduce themselves.

Housing Fair

The Housing Fair is an annual event which takes place every spring semester. It is an opportunity for students to do one-stop shopping for a place to live. We have all sorts of local businesses attend, including property management companies, apartment complexes, private landlords, realtors, community resources, and more!

In the spring semester, OCL staff travel to many of the residence halls to talk about living off campus. Budgeting, a guide to renting, tenants rights and responsibilities, and City ordinances are covered. A great event for first-time renters!
