Off Campus Connections

The support of living in residence while living off-campus!

Off Campus Connections offers off-campus students the fun and support of residence life. OCC is ideal for out-of-town students living off-campus, creating opportunities for our off-campus students to engage with each other and the community, while enjoying college life outside the classroom.

Each student who joins OCC will be added to an electronic mailing list.  Beginning with Orientation Week, Off-Campus Connection students will have the opportunity to get to know each other, as well as other Sault College students.  A member of our Residence Staff Team will touch base with you regularly, plan events, organize seminars in preparation for exams, and provide you with important information at key points throughout the year. Best of all, it's FREE to join!

This program is run by the Ray Lawson Hall Residence.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 705-759-2554 ext.2684.
