Student Involvement

Off-Campus Student Life

OCSL aims to provide off-campus students important tools and resources to help students connect academically and socially to campus.


The Off-Campus Student Life (OCSL) program is a resource for commuter students. The objective is to assist commuter students in making a successful transition to college and to make them feel right at home at Fresno State.

We provide a sense of belonging for students that reside off campus through various services and events. We also connect commuter students with on and off campus resources and develop working relationships with on-campus services and programs to bring awareness to commuter students.

Neighborhood Ambassadors

Our mission is to represent the voice of commuter students and address issues relating to living off-campus. We are a support system for commuter students, working to improve the overall commuter experience at Fresno State and surrounding areas. We support a variety of programming targeted specifically for commuter students and serve as the liaison for all students living off of the Fresno State campus.

We are looking for Fresno State students who want to connect to and feel a part of the campus community! We need students who have a positive attitude and enjoy engaging with others. Our board is designed to welcome commuter students with open arms and promote a positive college experience through educational and social activities.
