Off-Campus Students

We always encourage all off-campus students to engage as many events during Orientation Week as possible. We understand that your participation can be difficult with the commute between campus and home, but to support you, we have made key amenities, events and services designed to engage our incoming off-campus student community!

Student Lounge

Located on the second floor of Brescia’s new Academic Pavilion, the Off-Campus Student Lounge is a space for our students to sit back and relax during Orientation Week.

Off-Campus Student Meet & Greet

The Off-Campus Student Meet and Greet is designed to connect with students just like you! Whether you are local to the London area, or choosing to live outside of Clare Hall, this event is for you.



If any off-campus students are interested in utilizing a locker to keep valuables and belongings secure during Orientation Week, be sure to rent (for free) a locker! Available on a first come first serves basis, off-campus students will be able to sign-up to use a locker for Orientation Week when you pick-up your O-Pass. Lockers are located on the second floor of the St. James Building.
