Students are no longer required to notify OSU if they have tested positive for COVID-19. Employees, including student employees, must notify their supervisor if they have been onsite in the previous 10 days. See Positive Case Notification steps.

Do you live in on-campus housing? Review the COVID-19 guidelines in the UHDS Policy Guide 2020-23 (page 8) and contact your resident director with questions.

Supporting students

We are here to serve the students and tailor our services to their individual and population-level needs. Resources are available 24 hours a day!

IMPORTANT: Anyone with viral symptoms, sinus pressure and pain, sore throat, cough or any combination of these should self-isolate immediately and be tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible. For everyone's safety, assume these symptoms could be COVID-19 until you have a negative test. 

COVID-19 Testing

Students feeling unwell:

  • Contact SHS at 541-737-9355 to schedule a visit with one of our providers.    
  • If you'd like to speak with a nurse to discuss your symptoms, call the Nurse Advice Line at 541-737-2724 (during regular office hours) or 541-737-9355 (after-hours calls only).
  • Even if you have recovered previously from COVID-19, you may still need testing. Please contact one of our advice nurses to discuss.

Students with mild or no symptoms:

  • Antigen testing: Students who simply want a rapid test may use one of the self-test kits available at SHS and other locations on the Corvallis campus (while supplies last).
  • PCR Testing: Schedule an appointment with Willamette Valley Toxicology (now Rize) in downtown Corvallis. Testing appointments can be made online.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Immunizations offer safe, effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. This is especially true for students living in group housing on or off campus. By reducing cases and outbreaks of significant infectious diseases, OSU’s required immunizations help students stay in class and achieve their academic goals.

Questions? Call the Immunization Helpline at 541-737-7573 or send us an email.
