Mission of Off-Campus Student Life

The Office of Off-Campus Student Life supports Loyola’s non-residential student populations—off-campus and commuter students. OCSL supports off-campus students by strengthening the relationship between our student and non-student neighbors in Edgewater and Rogers Park. We collaborate with Loyola’s Office of Community Relations and Loyola’s Department of Campus Safety, as well as neighborhood associations, the Chicago Police Department to strengthen student awareness of the responsibilities of being a good neighbor. OCSL supports commuter students through advocacy and programming. OCSL collaborates with a variety of campus partners to help the campus community recognize the needs and challenges of our off-campus and commuter student populations.
