Give to Ohio State



The Office of Student Life is dedicated to creating the extraordinary student experience at Ohio State. The staff, programs, and services are designed to help students transition into and through college and prepare them for a lifetime of learning and contribution to a global society. The Office of Student Life provides opportunities that complement the academic curricula and help students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including housing, dining, recreation, student organizations, health care, counseling, and career development.

The Office of Student Life seeks to ensure that each student has a healthful and safe environment, supportive living conditions, appropriate counsel and assistance, multiple opportunities to develop leadership and citizenship skills, and experiences that lead to greater appreciation of diverse peoples and cultures.
