Off-Campus Services provides programs and events specifically to support students living off-campus.
Off-Campus students are encouraged to consider how they can reduce waste by donating unwanted clothing, non-perishable food, or furniture to local community organizations. Information about who to donate will be available in the spring.
I Am Normal is a community standards campaign sponsored by Off-Campus Services and the Town of Normal to remind students that they are citizens of Normal in addition to being Illinois State students. Staff distribute tshirts, magnets, and keychains throughout the year with the I Am Normal pledge.
Each August as students are moving in, staff from the Division of Student Affairs and Town of Normal welcome back off-campus students. Staff go door to door in key off-campus housing apartments to let students know they are not forgotten even though they live off-campus. 2,000 students receive a goodie bag of items ranging from information about hosting a responsible party and magnets about Town of Normal ordinances to information about campus and town departments and activities.
As a student, you're part of this community. Come meet Town of Normal Council members and staff; discuss what matters to you. This event is being held October 17.
A lease is a legal document. When you sign a lease you are legally obligated to abide by all the terms so it is important to understand everything it says. But sometimes reading a lease feels like reading a foreign language. The Students' Attorney can review your lease and help you understand what it means before you sign it. You can make an appointment for a lease review by calling (309) 438-2008.
Illinois State students give back to Normal every spring semester to thank the community by performing requested acts of service, such as: raking leaves, painting, washing windows, and gardening at local homes and agencies.
