The Office of Student Life (OSL) CAREs for students by building COMMUNITY for students, facilitating ACCESS for students, navigating RESOURCES for students and supporting EMPOWERMENT for students. We assist students in the resolution of problems and concerns, provide information about and referral to campus resources, and promote initiatives that address students' needs and interests. We also serve as a resource for parents, families, faculty and staff in supporting student success from the First-Year Experience program through graduation.

Office of Student Life 

The Childcare and Family Resources office supports parents at OSU by advocating for student parent needs, as well as the needs of all parents and caregivers on campus and by providing direct services, child care and other family-centered resources in support of a parent’s academic and professional success. We oversee Beaver Beginnings, the campus child care center; provide free short-term drop-off child care for students with children; provide lactation rooms across campus and lactation support information; administer student and faculty/staff child care subsidy programs; provide monthly parenting education and support opportunities; and host special events for families, in addition to other services and resources. The Childcare and Family Resources office is primarily student fee funded and is directed by an advisory board of students, faculty and staff.

Our Little Village (OLV) is a short-term drop-off child care center with two locations on campus, open evenings and weekends. Drop-off child care enables student parents to take advantage of two important resources on campus: The Valley Library and Dixon Recreation Center. Any currently enrolled student may drop off their child aged 6 months to 10 years old. The free service is paid for by student fees. In The Valley Library, parents must remain in the building while their child is in care. In Dixon Recreation Center, parents may leave the facility and work or study elsewhere on campus.

Corvallis Community Relations

Office of Student Life 

Corvallis Community Relations enhances neighborhood livability and inspires a shared responsibility for creating a healthy, inclusive OSU-Corvallis community. We connect students with community resources to foster good neighborly behavior and educational tools to educate tenants of their rights and responsibilities. Corvallis ranks among the nation's top college towns and best places to live. Through collaboration, communication, education, and celebration, CCR helps to keep it that way.

Live Smart Workshops

While the independence of living on one’s own may be liberating, managing new challenges and increased responsibilities can be challenging. Live Smart Workshops provide OSU students with the tools to transition to living off-campus and to live smarter—to be respectful, good neighbors. Workshop topics include local laws and ordinances, tips on hosting responsible parties, safety and security, financial literacy, and tenant rights and responsibilities. Students who attend the Live Smart Workshop and pass the corresponding online Preferred Renters Exam are eligible to receive a $50 rental deposit discount with properties participating in the Preferred Renters program.

Oregon State University is host to 45 different fraternities and sororities representing three governing councils of the College Fraternity Movement. The Greek experience on the OSU campus places emphasis on academic achievement, community building, community service, service learning, and preparing the Greek students for leadership roles following graduation.

The Greek community participates in leadership roles as ASOSU officers, Barometer staff members, MUPC chairs, resident assistants, and varsity athletes.

Representing approximately 12 percent of the undergraduate student population, the Greek community at OSU has provided 100 continuous years of excellence in service and support to Oregon State University.

Students interested in exploring membership in a fraternity or sorority may contact the Center for Fraternity & Sorority Life at Student Experience Center, Room 314, Corvallis, OR 97331; 541-737-5459, or visit our website for additional information,
