As a result of university efforts to engage in social distancing to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Oregon State University Office of Admissions recruitment and visit programs will be held virtually. Although we’re sad you can’t come to campus, we are excited to invite you to engage in a virtual visit experience. Click here for a list of ways to connect with Oregon State from home!

The Welcome Center at OSU can provide information and tours to prospective students about the options available at Oregon State University. We offer high school groups a 60-minute guided walking tour of campus and a general information session with a student panel (45 minutes). So as not to overwhelm the campus community, we prefer groups limit the number of participants to no more than 40. Larger groups may need special tour accommodations and such arrangements will be considered on a case-by-case basis. To provide you with the best possible visit, we request at least 30 days to make arrangements. The Welcome Center cannot accommodate more than two group visits per day.
Group Visits are provided Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. during the year. The university is closed on New Years Day, MLK Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, and Christmas.
