Most of OSU's wireless network is intended to provide coverage in indoor spaces. Wireless may bleed over into outdoor areas but coverage is not particularly good in those cases.

However, a few outdoor areas have intentional wifi coverage; they are listed below.


Yellow areas on this map indicate outdoor wireless coverage areas:

Outdoor spaces with intentional wifi coverage on the OSU Corvallis campus:

  • Valley Library quad - the South half of the quad is covered by access points mounted on Valley Library
  • Parking structure at 26th and Washington Way - most areas in the parking structure are covered but there are a few dead spots
  • Parking lot North of McNary hall, near the East end of the building
