Welcome to Off-Campus Student Services! We work with a number of different student populations – off-campus students, veterans and adult students. If you need support, assistance or have a question, we are here for you! We also have a role in dining services, including meal plan changes and support and special diet accommodation.

Off Campus Student Services is here for ALL of YOU, and we want you to hear all your concerns. Please email Chris “CJ” Porter at cjporter@umw.edu with any questions, comments, or suggestions!

Need some food support?

If you or someone you know has trouble affording nutritious meals, check out the Swipe Out Hunger program. The program helps support students at UMW who are experiencing ‘food insecurity’ – that’s when you don’t have the resources to eat like you should to keep your brain learning.

It’s free and there’s a simple form to fill out. There are meals available, so, please don’t hesitate because you think that someone probably has it worse off than you. Let’s get you fed!

Swipe Out Hunger Application for 22-23
