Oregon State University
Oregon State University (OSU) is an international, public research university in Oregon and the largest university in the state. The university's roots date back to 1856, when it was established as the area's first community school for primary and preparatory education.
OSU is the perfect place for students looking to study at a research-intensive university. No matter if students decide to study business, engineering or any of our other programs, they'll enjoy opportunities to get hands-on experience in every field. OSU received $441 million in research funding for the 2017 fiscal year.
The main campus is located in Corvallis, in the Willamette Valley, and much of the campus was designated the Oregon State University Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places. Corvallis is the tenth largest city in the state, has a relatively small community and many of the local events have a strong connection to the university. Oregon State has over 400 active student organizations and groups. The campus is located only a few hours driving distance from any number of outdoor recreation opportunities. Cascade Range, a rugged coastline, several large forests, the high desert and numerous rivers and lakes make up popular student destinations. Portland, Oregon's largest city, is 137 km north of the campus. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
