Visit Oregon State University

Your Journey Starts Here

The OSU Welcome Center

The Welcome Center is where your journey to Oregon State University begins. We welcome prospective students, family members, high school and community college groups, counselors, new OSU staff and faculty, alumni, and any other visitors who travel to our beautiful Corvallis campus. Our goal is to provide a warm, welcoming and accessible visit experience to everyone. We can’t wait to meet you on campus!

Experience Campus

The Welcome Center, located in the southwest corner of Reser Stadium, is now open for daily visits to the public! We can’t wait to welcome you to our new location with access to more than 15,000 square feet of space. 

The new Welcome Center space was thoughtfully designed in order to highlight the very best of Oregon State University: academics, research, student life, culture, community, athletics, alumni contributions and more. Displays on the first floor show off unique OSU artifacts, including the two Nobel Prize medals donated by OSU alumnus Linus Pauling, the mammoth bones unearthed during 2016 construction at Reser Stadium, a marching band uniform from decades past, and much more.
