For summer 2021, we are pleased to offer an on-campus visit experience through the Oregon State University Welcome Center.
Please keep in mind 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.
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!
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.
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.
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 14 days of their scheduled visit day.
During your campus visit, please listen to the guidance of OSU representatives while you are on campus and plan to follow the university's current COVID-19 guidance.
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 Zoie Inouye (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.
