As you make your way down York Road to your Monday morning
class, look around. You’ll probably notice that you’re in one of many
cars heading for TU. Off-campus and commuter students make up
more than 75 percent of TU’s full-time undergraduate population.
To help non-residential students connect to campus and the greater
Towson community, Off-Campus Student Services (OCSS) provides
a wide range of resources, services and programs designed to
help students develop into responsible community members with
independent life skills. Whether you currently live off-campus or are
planning to move off campus, let OCSS be part of your off-campus
OCSS provides various types of information for commuter students.
MTA schedules, area maps, shuttle service information and off-campus
housing options can be found at the OCSS information
board on the first floor of the University Union, next to Auxiliary
OCSS provides programs to connect non-residential students
with the campus community and fellow commuters. OCSS hosts
commuter-friendly programs like Commuter Appreciation Day, Good
Evening Commuters, and Finals Fuel,
and supports the program initiatives of the Commuter Student
Organization (CSO). The CSO distributes monthly newsletters,
participates in community service opportunities and hosts programs
for commuter students.
