We can't wait to see you

This fall, we plan to come together as a community, Corvallis and Bend students back on campus for a primarily in-person experience. We recognize that you may be excited or nervous, or you may be feeling a combination of these feelings. Oregon State has resources to support you as we begin the new academic year.

Health and Well-Being

We all have a role to play in building a safer and healthier community. If you haven’t already received a COVID-19 vaccine, check out information on where to get a vaccine and how to confirm your vaccination status. Oregon State requires vaccinations for students returning to in-person learning and university activities.

Have questions? Contact the COVID-19 hotline from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. at 541-737-7211 (option 7).

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever or new loss of taste, isolate and contact your medical provider. COVID-19 care ambassadors can walk you through available resources if you need to isolate or quarantine; they can help you plan for housing and food, connect you to health services, plus much more. If your learning in a course is disrupted by COVID-related factors, connect with your instructors to communicate what is going on and identify ways to make up course work. For guidance in this process, work with a strategist at the Academic Success Center.

All students living in the U.S are eligible for vaccination and should have access across the country. Those who are living outside of the country may also have access. We are planning for OSU’s vaccination program to allow students and employees to obtain the vaccine when they arrive on campus, so they can be in compliance with this program. Here are resources to help locate vaccines: CDC vaccine finder

State of Oregon Vaccine Finder.
