Other Visits Opportunities

Although these visit opportunities are not centrally coordinated by the OSU Welcome Center are are not an option in our above registration system, prospective students are encouraged to use the links below to find out how they can reach out and set up visits with these departments as interested:

Current Campus Visit Guidelines

We ask that visitors cancel their visit registration if they feel ill/experience COVID-19 symptoms within 72 hours of their scheduled visit day. We also ask that visitors cancel their visit registration if they test positive for COVID-19 within 5 days of their scheduled visit day.

While we appreciate "furry" family members, we ask that you please leave your pets at home. Animals, including emotional support animals, are not permitted inside OSU buildings which we walk through on tours. If you are bringing a trained service animal with you, please denote that in your visit registration in the "Disability Accommodations" section. Thank you!

Campus Parking for your Visit Day

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 car's make, model, color and license plate information 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, Group Visits or New OSU Staff/Faculty

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 Jaycee Iwasaki (TOUR Program Coordinator) at [email protected] to arrange a counselor visit.

Group Visits: If you are a group and/or school organization, please click here for more information, and to register a virtual or in-person group/school tour.
