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.
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 and transfer 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 21 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, Juneteenth, 4th of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, and Christmas.
