RHS Strategic Plan

Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS) completed its strategic plan Aug. 1, 2019. In collaboration with external consultants Hanbury Evans and Envision and various stakeholders, RHS created a plan that worked to reevaluate divisional goals and strategies to deliver the best possible service to the university. This plan is an important tool used by the Vice President for Auxiliary Enterprises Vennie Gore to highlight divisional plans and explain how the department aims to evolve its approach to service and guest interactions.


It is hard to know exactly how to take action and help those in need, while also keeping a safe social distance. Division of Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS) team members Dan Marlatt and Eric Samson have found a way to do exactly that by using their hobby and extra time at home to create 3D-printed masks for medical facilities.

Michigan State University (MSU) bleeds green, so Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS) strives to be as green (i.e. sustainable) as it can be!


With a little creativity and passion for helping Spartans stay active, the MSU Recreational Sports Team has created a variety of virtual group exercise opportunities.


In the weeks following the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, Michigan State University was faced with the challenge of deciding what to do about the myriad conferences and events scheduled to take place in the coming weeks. While many were forced to cancel due to the circumstances, some were able to adapt to a virtual formatting.


While students have been encouraged to return their permanent place of residence, we understand that not all students can do so. We believe it is important to brief you on the cleaning practices used within our facilities and detail our plans in keeping campus healthy and safe. 

Pack Up. Pitch In.

As we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Vice President for Auxiliary Enterprises Vennie Gore and university partners take a moment to reflect on Michigan State University’s many accomplishments in sustainability.
