The Off Campus Student Center is an on campus home for off campus students. The Center is located in room 314 of the Student Union and is staffed by Off Campus Student Life Coordinators, Graduate Assistants, and Professional Staff. These individuals act as a resource for students who live or plan to live off campus.
NOW HIRING FOR TEAM POSITIVE PRESENCE
Team Positive Presence (TPP) is a student led initiative to promote and provide a safe environment during both University sponsored and student-initiated events. The goals of the TPP’s program are to facilitate a culture of safe celebrations, increase the sense of community among UMass students, and create a positive social atmosphere on campus. This will be accomplished through the use of active bystandership, positive social messaging, education of University and Amherst regulations and laws, and social norming techniques.
Walk This Way encourages students to walk on campus rather than along residential streets as they move to and from the Southwest Residential Area. Many neighbors and students have felt the impact of noise, trash, public urination, and vandalism on weekend evenings.
The goal of Walk This Way is to encourage students to change their path away from the neighborhoods to minimize this impact while reminding students who choose to walk in the neighborhoods to be mindful of their noise level.
