Student Activities

Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service

The Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service, on the second floor of the Ohio Union, is your point of connection for the full spectrum of involvement at Ohio State. You can connect with leadership and service initiatives, engage with student organizations, advance your learning and create lasting memories. 

For students looking to get involved, this is a great place to start - set up a meeting with a staff member or visit organizations who have offices in the Center. For students who are already involved, the Center is your home away from home - utilize services and supplies from the Resource Room, book a meeting space for your leadership team, or catch up with friends in the Student Organization Lounge.

Contact: I 614-292-8763

To make reservations or place orders in the Resource Room please call or stop by in person.
