On Campus Transition Housing

Students have the opportunity to choose between on-campus or off-campus housing when enrolled in the On College Transition (OCT) program. Both options provide students with an immersive, safe and traditional college living arrangement. Students who choose housing options benefit from the whole experience of accepting responsibility while managing to navigate independence.

Housing options are offered to our students based on an assessment of skill sets as well as community awareness. All options are furnished with a bed, dresser and desk while rugs, lamps and other non-essentials are provided by the student. Internet and cable is provided for both on- and off-campus options. Direct, overnight supervision is not included in either option. Students are responsible for meal preparation, grocery shopping and typical household chores.
