The dedicated staff of Capital Planning and Development manages the real estate; land use planning; design and development; and space management needs for OSU's built environment. 

The many unique and valuable elements that comprise OSU's 570-acre Corvallis campus, such as registry in the National Register of Historic Places, the variety of natural features including creeks, wetlands, grasslands, and mature tree groves, and the buildings that house OSU's twelve colleges, Administrative Offices, Research Labs, Pac-12 athletic venues, recreational facilities, and a variety of student residences, make planning and developing OSU's built environment a rewarding challenge for the CPD team.
