The LaSells Stewart Center is the first performing arts venue and conference center on the campus of Oregon State University.  Since 1981, when our facility was first constructed from patron-donor funds, we have progressed and are now honored to be named the largest art gallery in the Willamette Valley. The spacious venue is available all year-round to rent for various types of occasions, such as conferences, concerts, receptions, art shows, cultural celebrations, and student-run events.

Over 40,000 square feet of the facility is dedicated to conference space where each venue is equipped with cutting-edge technology. We’ve got numerous conference halls in a range of different sizes to accommodate your event, including a dual level 1,200-person auditorium, a 200-person lecture hall, four breakout rooms, and an executive boardroom.

Each year, we hold over 20 theatrical and musical performances as well as showcase ballets, drag shows, and comedy shows. Because we have the Giustina Gallery, the largest art gallery in the Willamette Valley, we have the opportunity to feature artwork created by local artists, and even artists from all over the Northwest region. As a performing arts center, we strive to embrace creativity and bring out the best the arts has to offer.
