    off at college

    Hi there,

    I don't understand what "off" mean in the following context, could anyone help me out? Thanks a lot.

    A: Do you have any children?
    B: I have a son. He is nineteen.
    A: Off at college?

    What does "off at college" mean?

    (To a non English native speaker, sometimes the easiest word, such as "off", is most difficult to figure out.)
