MyOregonState - Employee Getting Started Guide


MyOregonState is a personalized and dynamic dashboard that is the front door to your digital life with Oregon State. It brings together many systems across the university and makes it easy for you to find information you need to succeed and get things done. It is a mobile-first experience built on modern technologies, frameworks and principals - We are hard at work to constantly iterate and improve upon the platform with your feedback.

Accessing MyOregonState

  1. Point your web browser to
    • Note: MyOregonState is no longer supported on Internet Explorer.
  2. Enter your ONID user name and password if prompted. You'll also need to complete DUO authentication. 
  3. If you are also a student, or taking courses with Oregon State, authorize MyOregonState to connect to your Canvas account (this is an optional step, but most functionality in MyOregonState will be removed if you do not connect Canvas.)


Areas of MyOregonState

MyOregonState is divided into several different functional areas:

  • Overview
  • Resources
  • Beta
  • Profile & Settings


The Overview page gives you easy access to Empcenter and Evals, favorite, trending and featured resources, IT system status, as well as announcements and events. (Note: as of February 2021, off-campus access to Evals requires a VPN connection.)

Employee Tools

The employee tools card gives you quick access to the most commonly accessed tools for all Oregon State employees.

Featured Resources

Featured Resources are timely and relevant tools, services or links to help you get things done. They are updated frequently and are relevant to the current term, week or day. If you are looking for a resource that is not listed here, you can click the orange link at the bottom of the card to see more. 

Trending Resources

Trending Resources are resources that many of your peers are currently accessing. This list of resources is generated automatically based on access.

Favorite Resources

These are your favorited resources. If you click on the small heart icon to the right of a resource anywhere in MyOregonState, they will appear in this list.

Announcements and Events

This area displays Oregon State events and announcements relevant to you. For example, if you work in Bend, you will see events relevant to that area.



The resources page has all of the links you need to get things done. You can search and filter resources, as well as favorite the ones you use often.


On the profile page, you can see your contact information, address and other demographic info. You can also toggle your campus or affiliations here to change what content you see in your dashboard. Visiting Bend for the day? Just toggle your campus to see relevant resources, events and more!


MyOregonState is currently in Beta. This means that we are constantly refining the platform and adding new features. See the latest updates about MyOregonState here and give us feedback or tell us what you'd like to see in the future!

Student Dashboard

If you are an employee that interfaces with students at Oregon State, or if you are taking courses with Oregon State, you may be interested in switching to the Student Dashboard view. You can do this from the Profile drop down in the top-right corner of the screen.
