As part of the Community Hall Slope Project, Oregon State University will begin work in early July 2021 to update the area shown in the map image below to provide access through this portion of OSU’s Corvallis campus for all people. ADA improvements related to the project will also require reconstruction of building entrances to Gladys Valley, the Pharmacy Building and Joyce Collin Furman Hall. There will be an open entrance to each building at all times. 

We will work to accommodate the needs of users working within the project area, but there will be disruptions to many day-to-day activities. If you have specific concerns regarding this project and how it may impact you or your work, please contact with Construction Manager Lindsey Austin at 541-990-7720, to work through any issues.
