Welcome to Off Campus Student Services (OCSS)! Our team assists in orienting students with Towson University and the greater Towson community, preparing students for successful transitions, and facilitating continued student success through graduation. With a variety of exciting, interactive events planned throughout the year, OCSS creates opportunities for students to stay engaged and connected to the greater campus community. OCSS is committed to providing information, resources, education, and programs that promote awareness, independence, and engagement to all Towson University students. In addition, OCSS offers all students who commute to campus from home or live off campus with support and resource referrals throughout their off-campus housing experience.
Students who live off campus should contact OCSS to find information regarding suitable housing, exercising their rights and upholding their responsibilities as tenants and as members of the community. At OCSS students will also obtain assistance with other off-campus housing questions.
This website provides an overview of the off-campus living experience by offering useful information on important topics including student responsibilities, leases, safety off-campus, and handling roommate conflicts.
