  • The Off Campus Address Verification (OCAV) process takes place each academic year and is part of an effort to provide greater support and guidance to students living off campus. The online orientation highlights student rights and responsibilities and reiterates some of the University‚Äôs expectations of students living off campus. After completing the online orientation, students register and verify a local address with the university. This information assists with university planning, maintaining community safety and security, and facilitating effective communication with students.

  • All students living off campus receive notification via their LMU email addresses when the OCAV process is available. Once notified, you can complete the process by following these steps:

    • Visit MyLMU and sign in using your LMU credentials.
    • Open the dropdown listing from "System Logins."
    • Select OC Orientation and Address Verification. This will take you to the online orientation system. 
    • After you complete the online orientation, verify your address by bringing a piece of mail with your name on it to either Off Campus Student Life (Malone 301) or Public Safety (Foley Annex).  
  • By the end of September, all students who have not completed the online address verification process will have a hold placed on their accounts. This will prevent any adding/dropping of classes and Spring registration. Additionally, this could result in a $200 fine being placed on your account.

    Be sure to complete the OCAV process as quickly as possible to avoid affecting your registration eligibility.
