About OSU

Oregon State University (OSU) is a leading research university located in one of the safest, smartest, greenest small cities in the nation. Situated 90 miles south of Portland and an hour from the Cascades or the Pacific Coast, Corvallis is the perfect home base for exploring Oregon’s natural wonders.

OSU is making a positive difference in Oregon and beyond — meeting challenges and solving problems through discovery, innovation and application. That includes commercializing research through technology transfer, spinout companies and licensing to turn ideas into reality.

Founded in 1868, OSU is Oregon’s only university to earn Carnegie Foundation’s top-tier designation for research institutions. OSU is among the leading research institutions — both nationally and worldwide — in a range of fields including marine sciences, forestry, climate change, wave energy, sustainable food systems, nuclear engineering, preventive medicine and drug development.

OSU welcomes a diverse student body of nearly 24,000 students from across Oregon, all 50 states and more than 100 countries. They can choose from more than 200 undergraduate and more than 80 graduate degree programs.
