Facilities Renewal Initiative
Oregon State University has been investing in improving our 150-year-old Corvallis campus. Leadership is committed to decreasing the backlog of maintenance, improvements and renovations known as deferred maintenance.
Nine years of increasing E&G funding, and state bond funding has been earmarked to tackle deferred maintenance and extend the life of our physical assets. Our campus is undertaking a facilities renewal initiative.
The university's capital renewal needs and strategic solutions are outlined in a set of FAQs and a comprehensive memo (.docx).
State Bond Funding
Traditionally, state bond funding has been used to improve the university's infrastructure.

Education & General Funding
Starting in FY18, the university increased the E&G funds dedicated to facilities renewal by $5 million. In FY22, the university reduced the funds dedicated to facilities renewal to $3.5 million per year. Much of the E&G funded projects will be replacing failing or inefficient building systems, such as roofs, HVAC, building controls or other mechanical systems.
