What is the HSRC???


Our Mission

We provide direct service, outreach, education, and referral services to OSU students facing hunger, housing problems, and poverty. Our aim is to ensure basic human needs are met so that students can pursue a quality education. We also work to create a dynamic learning environment in which students, faculty, and the community can learn how to best address current pressing challenges facing college students. 


Here's How the HSRC Helps Students:

  • We provide intermediary services between students and agencies that offer rental assistance, food stamps, food boxes.
  • Our Food Pantry offers emergency food to students in need.
  • Our Textbook Lending Program helps connect eligible students to free textbooks (as well as other affordable ways for everyone to obtain textbooks).
  • We offer workshops, seminars, and opportunities for internships and employment.
  • We can connect you to Service-Learning and community service opportunities.
  • We can offer eligible students financial assistance to maintain food security through the Food Assistance Program.
  • We help with applications for food stamps.
