Off-Campus Student Advising fosters and enhances the off-campus student experience through education, advocacy, and involvement. The off-campus advisor helps students strengthen their connection to campus and navigate obstacles that emerge from living off campus. Off-Campus Student Advising works directly with students and their academic advisors while also collaborating with other campus offices (e.g. Division of Student and Academic Life, Enrollment Management, International Center, and Office for Institutional Diversity) to provide the best resources to promote the success of off-campus students at UK.

Off-Campus Student Advising will work collaboratively with college advisors to assist in the success of first-year and transfer students.
