First-Year Off-Campus Community

Welcome to First-Year Off-Campus Community!
A place for everyone to call home 

The Queen's First-Year Off-Campus Community (First-Year OCC, or OCC) is a group of current first-year students living off-campus and their upper-year student "Off-Campus Leaders (OCLs)." The First-Year OCC aims to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for first-year students living off-campus during their transition to university. Our goal is to help ease your transition into the Queen's community and provide social support and specific resources for those who live off-campus – whether that be with family, friends, or in your own space!

The First-Year OCC offers yearlong support through your leaders and the program to connect you with your peers, community, and resources at Queen’s.
