"Campus Grounds" refers to all outdoor areas on campus, including all campus streets and sidewalks, park and lawn areas, parking lots, patios, malls, etc. Some exclusions apply, see below under 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.
Campus Grounds Use Request (CGUR) is not needed for the following locations. Please contact the department directly for permission to use their space. However, if your event in addition involves other locations on campus not listed below, you will also need to fill out a Campus Grounds Use Request form.
If your event involves food and beverages, you must follow the OSU Food Service Guidelines.
If you have questions or need further assistance, please email [email protected] or call 541-737-2402 and leave a message as many of our staff are currently working remotely.
Planning for In-person Events
In-person events, activities and programming are critical to the vitality of our university and community, even while we work to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The Planning for In-person Events webpage is intended to support planners in providing the OSU community with in-person engagement in the context of COVID-19 safety protocols.
OSU In-Person Event Resumption Form
COVID-19 impacted in-person events at OSU. This form is intended to provide a process for event planners to submit proposals for in-person events. While many restrictions have been lifted and this form is not required, submissions will still be reviewed should you want feedback for your event. This process supports OSU's efforts to be in compliance with local, state, and federal guidelines, and OSU policy.
