The Voice of the Student Body


Due to the campus response to COVID-19 concerns, the OSA has temporarily limited services to students until further notice. 

Student Legal Services is functioning in a virtual capacity.  The campus food pantry, The Cabinet, and the UWO Go shuttle service is functioning in a limited in-person capacity.  

Please, direct any service requests, questions, comments, or concerns to Tyler Klaver, the OSA Office Manager:

The OSA encourages all students to check their emails to stay up-to-date during these times.

Oshkosh Student Association

What is the OSA?

The Oshkosh Student Association is the student government that represents all students regarding issues and policies relating to academic and non-academic concerns. Established in 1959, we advocate for the best interests of the students at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.  The State of Wisconsin affords all students the opportunity to provide input in all operations of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

Voicing Opinions, Representing the Student Body

The OSA is instrumental in voicing the opinions of the student body to University faculty, University of Wisconsin System administration, and the state and federal governments.  OSA created Differential Tuition in 2004 to help supplement areas where budgets were severely cut by the state.  Differential Tuition helped preserve quality student services such as the Writing Center, Math Lab, Academic Advising, Career Services, Counseling Center, Reading Study Center, and Oshkosh Scholar.  In addition, OSA is also responsible for the distribution of $9 million in segregated fees that fully fund the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, Reeve Memorial Union, Children’s Learning and Care Center, and Titan Athletics.  Other services and programs The OSA has brought to the University include the Titan Readership Program, Titan Transit, Student Legal Services and Titan Discount Club.

The OSA currently supports and allocates budgets to approximately 150 student organizations at UW Oshkosh and oversees the approval and recognition of these student organizations.

OSA Mission Statement
