Off-Campus Student Life addresses the needs and concerns of off-campus students. Loyola Marymount University established the OCSL office to help our students live safely and in harmony with the off campus community.
Through programs, resources and support services, the OCSL office provides opportunities for off-campus students to become integrated into the local neighborhood. The staff promotes good relationships with neighbors by increasing students' awareness of their responsibilities as members of the residential community.
In addition, OCSL serves as a liaison between the university and our neighbors, encouraging dialogue about issues of mutual concern.
Off-Campus Student Orientation & Address Verification System
An online off-campus student orientation and address verification system has been developed that is mandatory for all students living off-campus. The orientation outlines an introduction to Off-Campus Student Life, education and training about good neighbor relations, the University information about off-campus life issues, and an overview of resources available to off campus students. Following completion of the Off-Campus Student Orientation the student will be required to verify the students’ off campus address. Failure to register a local address will result in a registration hold.
The Off Campus Student Orientation and Address Verification can be found in each student’s MyLMU account under System Logins > OC Address Verification.

Off-Campus Student Life works in conjunction with the Department of Judicial Affairs to enforce the Community Standards and sanction violations appropriately. Judicial Affairs has assigned all off campus violation to a member of the judicial team in order to ensure consistency of policy enforcement.
