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!
For summer 2021, we are pleased to offer a 2-hour visit experience through the Welcome Center. This visit will include a 30 minute admissions presentation that will be customized to your student type, whether you've been admitted to OSU for fall 2021 or if you're a prospective student who is wanting to learn more about OSU. Following the presentation, we'll take you on a 90-minute walking tour of campus led by our outstanding student TOUR Ambassadors.
Throughout the summer, we hope to add additional campus visit experiences with various departments. Keep an eye on our visit registration form for any additional opportunities as they become available. Please also note that the campus will still largely be operating remotely during summer 2021, so you may not be able to meet in-person with some departments. In these cases, we will be happy to let you know how you can connect with these departments virtually.
Check back soon for more information on how to register for a campus visit!
Please note the Welcome Center's campus-based operations will pause during winter break and/or university holidays. Check out our visit registration calendar for information on which dates we have open for campus visits.
We are thrilled to be resuming campus visits beginning June 1. As you consider registering for a campus visit, we ask you to please review this website with our expectations for campus visitors.
Please remember that visit reservations are strictly required and we cannot accept day-of walk-ins for campus tours.
The Welcome Center's campus visit operations are contingent upon local and state COVID-19 levels. As Corvallis moves between different COVID-19 risk levels, we may have to close down or alter our on-campus operations. Should this occur, campus visit registrants will be contacted via email as soon as possible.
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.
Counselors: Why should your students get to have all the fun? If you are a high school counselor or independent counselor, come and experience Beaver Nation for yourself! We will customize a campus visit for your needs. Interested counselors may email Natalie Rooney (Associate Director, Visit Programs) at Natalie[email protected] to arrange a counselor visit.
Group Visits: If you are a group and/or school organization, our group visits will continue to be conducted virtually through summer 2021. Please click here for more information and to register a virtual group/school tour.
