Please Note: Elementary and Middle School visits are now hosted by Precollege Programs.

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 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, Juneteenth, 4th of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, and Christmas. For more information, please visit Frequently Asked Questions for Group Tours
