Off-Campus Student Services
If you are transferring to USC in Spring 2014, watch this webinar for information about finding off-campus housing.
Has your student expressed interest in living off campus next year? If you have questions about navigating the search process and how to support your student, view our recent webinar.
Community Ambassador Program
Off-Campus Students Services (OCSS) at the University of South Carolina will employ students to serve as Community Ambassadors (CAs) to help carry out daily duties and communications, as well as special events hosted by the office. This opportunity should be seen as not only employment, but also one where leadership is extremely important. The Community Ambassador Program is a group of student leaders living off campus that advocate for their fellow off-campus peers. CAs will be selected, trained, supported, and supervised by OCSS. This program furthers the goal of OCSS by providing support services and education to off-campus students to help improve their on- and off-campus experiences.
Sample Roommate Contract
It may be wise to create a contract with your roommates addressing concerns and expectations prior to moving in or right after moving in. Here’s a sample roommate contract that we created. These are only suggestions of ideas. Feel free to edit and create a new contract that covers personal issues and concerns.
Commuter Connect is our monthly newsletter for off-campus students. We will publish information about what is going on in the community and on campus. We will also provide tips for off-campus students who are renting in the area.
