While OCSS does not provide students with referrals to specific properties, we are here to assist you with the housing locator, clarify information when possible, and offer guidance for living off campus. Contact us for assistance in making an informed decision about where to live!

For those not able to secure a space on campus, please view the tip sheet, housing map, amenities chart and Off-Campus Living Guide to get started on your off-campus housing search. We strongly recommend viewing our webinars below before beginning your search.
