Campus Grounds Use Permit

"Campus Grounds" refers to all outdoor areas on campus, including all campus streets and sidewalks, park and lawn areas, parking lots, patios, malls, etc.

  • Campus Grounds Use Requests must be submitted at least 14 days before the event date. 
  • Any events involving alcohol must be submitted at least 21 days before the event date.
  • Any events requiring road closure must be submitted at least 28 days before the event date and may require a City of Corvallis Parade Permit.


  • A $40 administration fee will be charged for all submissions. Payable by index (OSU Departments), check or credit card.
  • Additional fees may apply for road closures, complicated events, and damage repairs.

Road Closures/Construction:

  • OSU roads are for the steady flow of all traffic modes. It is rare for OSU to close a road for an event. Please consider other campus open spaces prior to requesting a road closure. 
  • Please refer to the Closure Notices to see the most updated information on current campus detours and road closures.

Where is your event taking place?

If your event involves City of Corvallis property or roadways (e.g. marathons, marches, etc.) you will need a Parade Permit. This process can take up to 4 weeks. *Many city streets and transit routes (e.g. 14th/15th, 26th, Western & Monroe) cross through campus. If you have a race, you MUST call (541) 766-6924 to check if the area is City property.


If you have questions, please call (541) 737-2402 or email [email protected]
