Off-Campus & Commuter Services

If you are an off-campus or commuter student, Off-Campus and Commuter Services (OCCS) provides opportunities, events, and space for you to build your community at RIT with other off-campus students. OCCS hosts social gatherings, a celebratory week honoring commuter students (Commuter Spirit Week), and housing fairs to connect you to RIT and the surrounding Rochester community. OCCS also has a commuter lounge with study space, computers and printer access, free coffee, a microwave and refrigerator, and games to help you make this space a home away from home.

Connect with OCCS at Orientation and stop by the Commuter Lounge, located on the A-level of the Campus Center, open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
