Welcome to Corvallis
Corvallis is nestled in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley, within 90 minutes of the Portland Metropolitan area, world class skiing, and the spectacular Oregon coast. The Portland metro is accessible to the north for those seeking to add some big-city flair to their Northwest lifestyle.
The City of Corvallis is an employer of choice for the entire mid-valley region. With a strong focus on neighborhood livability and top-notch schools, Corvallis offers quite a bit to families as well. The city is filled with abundant parkland and green spaces. Rural natural areas are popular with hikers, cyclists and runners throughout the year.
The community is home to Oregon State University, and its students comprise about half of the city’s population during the school year. Celebrating its 150th year in Corvallis in 2017, OSU offers a wealth of culture and innovation, and many of its graduates take their knowledge directly into the region’s burgeoning technology sector.
Corvallis consistently ranks among the most livable college towns throughout the nation.
