This study is to find out how column with hole is behaved, compared to the normal one without hole. There might be existing buildings to make holes in the reinforced concrete column. Columns are made with commercially used compressive strength $240kg/cm^{2}$, air amount 5.0%, using re-bar of diameter D13 and D10 having yielding stress $4,000kg/cm^{2}$. The specimen were cured with temperature of $21{\pm}3^{\circ}C$. All specimens of five variables and all holes are geometrically considered and configurated. D3, D5 mean diameter 3cm and 5cm respectively. H1, H2 are the number of holes. Compressive pressure was forced in accordance with KS, following $0.6{\pm}0.4N/mm^{2}$ speed. Main re-bar's were strained with almost same shape through all the specimens. Hole diameter 5cm-having specimen showed cracking around hole. strains of back and front gauges of the specimen were showed similarly. Specimen having two holes in left and right from longitudinally axis resisted 7% less than the one having hole centrically from longitudinal axis. One hole having specimen with diameter 5cm resisted only 3% less than in case of 3cm diameter hole. Hole having in left and right from longitudinal axis will be less resistant than the case longitudinally arranged. Diameter 3cm hole showed less 10% capacity than normal one without hole. Capacity loss difference between diameter 3cm and 5cm showed almost none in case that they are arranged longitudinally.
