Romblon State University is a public university in the Philippines. It has eight campuses[1] and its main campus is located in Odiongan, Romblon.[2]


Founded in 1915 as Odiongan Farm School (OFS), it is one of the oldest learning institutions in the Southern Tagalog Region of the Philippines. It initially offered intermediate course in Agriculture, where emphasis was laid in the fundamental agricultural practices.

After five years of existence, the Odiongan Farm School was converted into Odiongan Rural High School, and offered complete secondary training courses headed by a Principal, under the supervision of the Division Superintendent of Schools, Division of Romblon. This curriculum was in force until 1946. In 1947, Odiongan Rural High School was changed to Odiongan High School. A general type A curriculum was then offered.
