About Us


Off Campus Life is committed to educating and assisting UF students to achieve a positive off-campus living experience. Through OCL’s resources, services, education and support we foster leadership and civic engagement to develop great gator neighbors in Gainesville and throughout the Gator Nation. But, how exactly is this achieved?

Off Campus Life adheres to four distinct pillars which aid us in achieving our mission to provide the best possible experience for students living off campus.


To help students with off-campus housing and their transition to the Gainesville community. Some examples include our Gator Guide and Housing Locator service.


To educate students about their role as roommates, community members and Gator neighbors. We strive to keep you informed through the use of social media, newsletters and programming such as Laws Over Lunch.


To provide students with the skills and opportunities to become leaders both on and off campus. OCL's student organization, the Off Campus Ambassadors, offers students’ opportunities to assist with outreach efforts, attend and help with events, assist students with off-campus housing questions and concerns and be an advocate for students living off campus.


To connect students to Gainesville through awareness and involvement. Through our Discover Gainesville event series we offer students opportunities to experience new venues, food and culture around town guided by local experts at no cost to you.
