What Does the Service Center Do?

  • We issue keys to students for their room for their contract period. If you get locked out, we have temporary keys and check you in and out of your room.
  • If you are moving to a different building, you will pick up the key to your new room at the corresponding Service Center(s).
  • If you are moving out (either during the year, or at the end of the year) we can assist with that process. If moving out contact your Resident Director (RD). See our move out checklist!
  • If you have a maintenance concern in your room, we can connect you with the appropriate personnel to have that concern addressed.
  • We can help explain how your dining plan works on you OSU ID card, and provide resources to help you budget your dining plan.
  • We can print a temporary meal pass for students with a dining plan who have temporarily misplaced their OSU ID.

If you have a question, we’re here to assist you. Our staff are also students who can offer a variety of resources to assist you with navigating your on-campus experience.

  • There is an OSU BeaverPrint printing station located in each of UHDS's three Service Centers. BeaverPrint allows students to upload documents and print to any BeaverPrint station on campus.
  • Each Dining Center lobby offers limited space on a first-come, first served basis, for the distribution of newspapers (including magazines and other periodicals) for OSU Student Organizations. Newspaper staff is responsible for stocking and maintaining order and cleanliness of bins/racks. Delivery must be made directly to the bin/rack.
  • Newspapers must be distributed in bins or racks, in locations determined by UHDS, that do not create fire/life safety hazards or obstruct entrance and exist ways. Bins/racks must be free standing and in good condition, as determined by UHDS. Bins/racks must remain stocked, with distribution schedule posted on the bin/rack, as well as contact information for questions, feedback and maintenance.

  • Distribution of newspapers must coincide with printing schedule, as posted on bin/rack. Bins/Racks left empty for more than thirty days are subject to removal. Requests for placement of bins/racks should be made to at least five (5) business days prior to desired distribution day. Requests for placement of bins/racks must be renewed each academic year.
