The Residence Halls Advisory Council (RHAC),  was established in 1981 as the official campus-wide governing association for undergraduate residence halls at OSU, seeking to create the premier residence hall experience and environment. RHAC serves its constituents through student advocacy, programming, promoting student leadership and involvement, and facilitating communication with university administrators to promote student success in all facets. Residence hall organizations can utilize RHAC as a funding resource as well -- RHAC, Hall Councils and BSA administer the fund pool created by students' $20/semester housing activity fees.

RHAC membership is comprised of a senator from the National Residence Halls Honorary, the Black Student Association and each of the hall and complex councils. Additionally, the assistant vice president of Student Life serves as an ex-officio non-voting member. Each spring, RHAC elects executive officers that assume their responsibilities on May 1 for the upcoming year:

  • President

  • Director of Operations (Vice President)

  • Director of Finance

  • National Communications Coordinator

  • Directors of Programming (3)


RHAC meets every other Tuesday evening during the academic year. These meetings provide a forum for residents to express their concerns, share their activities and ideas, develop leadership skills, and plan and coordinate university-wide programming and advocacy initiatives with fellow student leaders. RHAC is also a source through which campus administration can communicate goals and ideas and receive resident feedback. Working with national suppliers, they coordinate:
