OSU Portland Center

Oregon State has had a presence in Portland for over 20 years. The OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square represents OSU’s vision to meet the needs of the Portland community. Several OSU colleges and units, including OSU Extension, have a presence at the OSU Portland Center.

OSU Extension is the go-to resource for the expertise and knowledge every Oregonian needs to live healthy lives, nurture our great state’s ecosystems, and play a vital role in Oregon’s vibrant communities.

A few Extension employees have a “home base” office in the OSU Portland Center. Others who have programs and partners in Portland also use the space for activities, meetings or simply a landing spot to work for a few hours.

We’re usually out and about, so the best way to reach us is to contact individuals directly. We’d love to talk with you about how we can best work together to serve in Portland!
