Response to COVID-19
Although the Festival Conference & Student Center is currently closed to the general public, we are running the Pop-Up Pantry out of the Highlands Room in Festival. There are signs on all the entrance doors directing students to that location. For more information click here.
When the pantry is not open, OCL staff will be working remotely. To contact us, please phone 540-568-6071 and leave a message, email us at OCL@jmu.edu, or send us a message through Facebook. We are checking all messages regularly throughout the day. Thank you!
It is the mission of Off-Campus Life (OCL) to assist students in gaining necessary knowledge and skills to make informed decisions within the JMU off-campus community. The transition of moving off-campus includes new and exciting situations, challenges, and responsibilities. This includes upholding legal and community responsibilities, budgeting money, learning time management, and adjusting to life with new roommates. OCL helps students understand and live up to these new expectations.
