About Us

The Off-Campus Mavericks program was created in fall 2010 to address the needs of off-campus students at UT Arlington. The program was designed to help forge a stronger connection to campus life so that all UT Arlington students find a way to become involved and engaged on campus. Off-Campus Mavericks values and appreciates commuter students in a number of ways.

Off-campus students now have a physical location on campus to call their own. The Off-Campus Mavericks Center was opened in August 2010 to be a home away from home for commuting students. The Center provides the physical connection to campus life. The Center boasts a technologically advanced and enriching educational environment for our commuter students while providing all of the comforts of home, such as free coffee and a microwave to keep you on the go during the day. Visit the Off-Campus Mavericks Center, located in the MAC, and connect with other Off-Campus Mavericks like yourself.

In addition to a physical space on campus, the Off-Campus Mavericks program offers events and services for commuter students. OCM offers programs and activities, such as the Commuter Appreciation Breakfast, the Commuter Lunch Series to talk about common commuter issues, and the Off-Campus Maverick social mixer to connect with other students. “Like” our facebook page to stay connected to programs and get announcements. Sign up for the newsletter (email with the subject line “newsletter”) to get information and topics of interest to commuter students brought directly to your email.  Join the community at the Off-Campus Mavericks blog, the Parking Lot, which is a space to discuss commuter issues and news.  Finally, visit the Off-Campus Mavericks Center to take part in all that the Off-Campus Mavericks program and community has to offer.
