An ‘off campus’ student could be defined as someone who has decided to move straight into private accommodation or has decided to stay at home and commute to University also known as a ‘commuter student’. 

If you don’t live in halls of residence, you might sometimes worry that you will feel out of the loop about things going on around campus. It will take time for you to settle into University life so don’t be too hard on yourself when you are dealing with so much change.

This page will provide with you with practical advice, tips and services that can help you feel part of the student experience.
