Student/Parent Instructions
Business Week 2023
July 16- July 22, 2023


Students must arrange their own transportation to and from Business Week.  Students who choose to drive their own car will need to check their keys in at registration and will not be permitted to drive their car throughout the week. Students leaving their car on campus will need to purchase a parking permit for Monday through Friday.  Instructions for OSU Campus parking permits will be provided during check-in. Please note, students are quite exhausted at the end of a fully packed week. We highly encourage parents and/or guardians to drop off and pick up.



Registration is Sunday, July 16 from 9:00- 11:30 AM. All students should report to Poling Hall. Along with registration, students will receive their room assignment. You MUST arrive on campus during the Student Check-In time window,  unless PRIOR arrangements have been made with an OBA staff member. Click to view parking instructions.  OSU Campus parking is free on weekends.

If for any reason you cannot be at Oregon State University during the Sunday check-in time, please contact the OBA office immediately at



Guided tours of OSU will be available beginning at 9:45 AM and run until 11:45 AM (the final tour departs at 11:15 AM).  If you are interested in the tour, you must have already completed registration and your dorm move in. Please plan accordingly.



OBA will be providing a box lunch ONLY for the students at 1:10 PM. We encourage families that arrive early to allow enough time to find lunch for yourself or eat a packed lunch.  There are several off campus eating places nearby along SW Monroe Avenue. Once students are checked in, they must remain on campus.



The Opening Ceremony begins promptly at 12:00 PM in the Learning Innovation Center. Parents and/or guardians are invited and highly encouraged to attend the opening ceremony.



Please review the packing list and code of conduct to ensure you have the items and mindset you need to be successful at Business Week. 



If a student becomes ill prior to their scheduled week at OBA, or is no longer able to attend for various reasons,  please notify immediately. 



During OBA Business Week, the preferred contact number is (503)-673-6319. Leading up to Business Week and after, please use Anne Adler’s number, (917)-710-5736 for any inquiries.  If your matter is urgent, please text rather than leave a voice message to ensure prompt receipt.  



Check out is from 2:00-3:00 PM on Saturday. Students must be out of their accommodations by 3PM. We encourage parents or guardians to attend the Trade Show (12:00-1:00 PM) and Closing Ceremony (1:00-2:00 PM). The Trade Show is in the LiNC & Austin Courtyard. Closing Ceremony is back in LiNC. Prior to departure, all students MUST return keycards, borrowed chrome books, and room keys. Parents will be required to cover the cost of lost or damaged keycards and for the condition/damages of the residence hall room. If a student checked a car in during Sunday registration we will have their car keys at check-out. No students will be permitted to leave campus with an individual other than who is listed on their paperwork unless prior arrangements have been made with an OBA staff member.
