Revitalizing the Campus

Austin Hall, home of the College of Business

When you make a gift supporting Oregon State University facilities, you’re investing in people: students and faculty who study, explore, collaborate, and compete inside.

Most of the new buildings at Oregon State are constructed through a public-private partnership that combines state bonds and generous philanthropic gifts. Here are some recent highlights:

  • Austin Hall (College of Business)
  • Beth Ray Center for Academic Support
  • Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families (College of Public Health and Human Sciences)
  • James E. Oldfield Animal Teaching Facility (College of Agricultural Sciences)
  • Linus Pauling Science Center

A combination of state and private funds also support the modernization of buildings like Joyce Collin Furman Hall (College of Education) or spaces like the Paradigms in Physics classroom in Weniger Hall.

Athletic facilities such as the OSU Basketball Center are funded entirely by private donations.
