Our Numbers Add Up.

add up.

Oregon State University
is home to 30,000 students —

traditional first-years, transfers, graduate students, researchers, extended campus and online students, military veterans and returning students. And as the Division of Student Affairs, we want to give each and every OSU student the experience of a lifetime. This is just a glimpse of our engagement in numbers. 

Residence Halls

On average, the OSU residence halls are home for more than 4,000 students each term.

Dining Halls

In the course of a year, the OSU dining halls serve more than 2.5 million meals to students, staff and faculty.

University Housing & Dining Services plays an important role in student affairs, providing a safe, on-campus community and access to healthy meals. For more information about UHDS and its initiatives, visit uhds.oregonstate.edu.


Nearly 1,500 students lead as officers of a recognized student organization last year, with close to 10,000 students listed on organization rosters.

There are many ways to get involved on campus — a great place to start is Student Leadership & Involvement, which provides experiential learning opportunities for students through its various programs, including the Center for Civic Engagement, the Craft Center, Orange Media Network and OSU Program Council.

Greek Life

Each term, around 3,000 students find their community within one of the 52 chapters of OSU's Greek Life.

The Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life provides support for the OSU Greek community, promoting leadership and academic development, assisting in philanthropy planning, and helping to build community. For more information, visit studentlife.oregonstate.edu/cfsl.

Cultural Events

Last year, more than 3,000 students attended at least one cultural event.

While embracing and promoting diversity is a campus-wide initiative, the office of Diversity & Cultural Engagement is at the forefront of student affairs' efforts to increase inclusion and community for all OSU students of color, gender identity and sexual orientation.
