Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Office of Student Life to assist the students of College of the Desert in their journey to becoming responsible world citizens through co-curricular programs and activities that promote and develop college, and community leadership.

The Office of Student Life is made up of dedicated staff, including student workers, who understand and are committed to providing quality support to our students.

The Office of Student Life exists as a help hub for students and the general public, and provides a variety of services: computer lab, print center, faxing, club events, posting of materials (flyers), Student ID's, paint room, and student government.

COVID-19 Update

Consistent with the Riverside County Public Health Department, all College of the Desert facilities will be closed to students, faculty, staff and the community between March 16 and June 19, 2020. Only essential staff will be allowed on campus.

Although this closure includes the Office of Student Life, our staff continues to help students by working from home. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Student Life at 760.862.1317 or​
