Homecoming festivities Oct. 21-23

At Home with Oregon State

Beavers past and present, it’s time to reunite with your OSU family at home with Oregon State for the Homecoming 2021 celebrations.


We are looking forward to welcoming you back to campus for a variety of festivities before we cheer on our football team to victory against Utah.


Join us for an orange-and-black-filled week in the place that we all love: our beautiful campus. Or, celebrate homecoming wherever you are!


Dates, times and other details for in-person events are subject to change, as we monitor local COVID-19 protocols. Read information on OSU events vaccination requirements.
