Tips for Living Off-Campus

Back to school is upon us again! But this time, instead of backpacks and binders being the number one concern, you have much more to think about with your child entering university; even more so if your son or daughter is going to be living off-campus. At the Off-Campus Resource Centre (OCRC) we have all the resources you need to prepare your child for a successful off-campus living experience in Hamilton.

The OCRC office is located in the Student Centre basement in room B112. Along with our online student rental listings our staff also offers help with any lease or general housing issues that may arise throughout the year.  While you’re on the website, be sure to check out the new series of educational videos that we’ve created to help answer many typical student questions – about leases, the garbage and recycling system in Hamilton, as well as what it’s like coming here as an international student.
