OSU's Campus in Bend

Our students thrive in their academic pursuits, our researchers solve real-world challenges, and our campus expansion comes to life — because of our surrounding community.

It's a new era for the popular, 14-year-old series that has been held in venues throughout the region until now. Science Pubs have moved to Edward J. Ray Hall on the OSU-Cascades campus.

Public art on campus was commissioned or purchased by OSU-Cascades through the Oregon Arts Commission’s Percent for Art program, or donated to the campus.

A 30-year community vision is taking shape. Over the next decades, OSU-Cascades will expand, creating a 128-acre campus for up to 5,000 students.

Net zero would mean the campus consumes only as much energy as it produces, balances water availability and demand, and eliminates waste sent to landfills.
