AU campus quad 2017

The Office of Campus Life (OCL) is made up of 15 student-focused departments. Our goal is to support AU students on their journey to explore, connect, and grow into global citizens. We strive to create an inclusive campus community that fosters student learning, development, and success.

The OCL office is located on the 4th floor of the Butler Pavilion - one floor above the AU Bookstore. Stop by and see us!

The Market

The objective of The Market is to work together to prevent any student from having to skip meals and go hungry because they cannot afford enough to eat. Shoppers are encouraged - with no restrictions but consideration for others - to select the food items they need. For more information, email TheMarket@american.edu
