Resident Student Association

The Resident Student Association (RSA) is the coordinating body of the residential community. The goal of RSA is to work with all of the residence hall and Greek house councils, the hall and house staff, and Residence Life and BGSU administrative offices to improve the quality of residential life at BGSU through the development and improvement of policies, procedures, program and facilities.

All on-campus residents are members of RSA and are encouraged to become involved in the many leadership opportunities available within the organization. Specific opportunities include hall government representative and liaison positions with various campus organizations and committees.

Interested in getting involved with RSA?

Run for an open RSA Representative position on your hall’s Hall Council! RSA meetings are also open, so please feel free to come to meetings, Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. in Bowen-Thompson Student Union, room 207.

Support RSA

To help fund special events and other student offerings, RSA has offered a Linens and Bedding program since 1993. Students at BGSU require specially-sized sheets, mattress pads and comforters to fit campus mattresses. These beds, which are longer than 76 inches, are intended to maximize student comfort. Purchase Bedding through this program and ensure the right size linens for move-in.
