The Welcome Center is currently open and offering campus visits, though we may experience unexpected staffing shortages due to COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and flexibility if we need to offer alternate campus-based tour options for your scheduled visit day. All campus visitors are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated and/or have a negative COVID test result within 3 days of their scheduled visit.
We're here for you virtually or in-person!
If you're planning a trip to Corvallis, we're ready to welcome you for campus visits and tours!
While the Welcome Center is open for visits, we know that many of you will still be visiting campus virtually. We have a variety of options you can use to connect with us online:
The Oregon State University Welcome Center is located on the first floor of the Beth Ray Center for Academic Support at 671 SW 26th Street, Corvallis, OR 97331.
Getting Here: For daily tours and individual visits, check in at the Welcome Center (GPS: 671 SW 26th St, Corvallis, OR 97331). For Beaver Open House, Spring Preview and Orange & Black Day events, park in the parking garage (GPS: 661 SW 26th Street, Corvallis, OR 97331).
Parking: Complimentary parking will be provided to all visitors who register for a campus visit! Oregon State University uses a virtual parking permit system, meaning that you don't need to print anything out ahead of time. All you need is your license plate number for the car you drive to campus!
Registered visitors will receive emails with further instructions on how to obtain your virtual parking permit and directions to campus. Please register for a campus visit in order to receive these emails.
Visitors can park in floors 1-3 of the parking garage, or in any B or C zones using the virtual permit. Click here for a campus parking map displaying the location of the parking garage and the zoned parking areas. The best GPS address to the parking garage is 661 SW 26th St, Corvallis, OR 97331.
ADA Parking: While our virtual permits are for B and C zones, our virtual permit is also valid for vehicles with a DMV-isssued ADA parking placard to park in ADA parking spaces in any zone. When entering the parking garage, there are ADA parking spots to the left of the entrance.
