The mission of the Off-Campus Life office is to serve as the first point of contact for students moving and living off-campus. Our office has one constituency group - Northwestern students. We have multiple stakeholders with whom we communicate, coordinate, and refer around issues regarding students' rights, responsibilities, and resources.  Stakeholders include:

  • Northwestern Departments and Offices
  • NUPD/CPD/EPD (Police Departments for Northwestern, Chicago and Evanston)
  • Property Owners/Landlords
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Non-Student Neighbors
  • Area Businesses & Outside Vendors
  • City Officials, Staff & Services
  • Non-Profit Organizations
