The Learning Innovation Center (LInC), the HC offices and the SLUG will be open in the fall to provide students with support, services and study spaces as long as conditions allow. Co-curricular activities and HC advising will be offered both in-person and remotely. Our plan for these services and their availability will respond to current health conditions and public health guidelines, and we will take all precautions to minimize student, staff and faculty risk of exposure to COVID-19. Information about Oregon State University's current safety and success plans is available here.

Honors College Office - 450 Learning Innovation Center 

The Honors College offices in the Learning Innovation Center 450 is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and the Learning Innovation Center is open 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Access to Honors College resources requires use of face masks and adherence to physical distancing guidelines in accordance with OSU safety policies. In addition, all Honors College students must agree with the Honors College Community Compact and follow all posted rules and instructions in HC spaces.

The SLUG - Learning Innovation Center 

Special note - Due to ongoing issues with the ID card readers, the numerical code emailed to students at the beginning of the term will continue to provide after hours access to the LInC during SLUG open hours until further notice.

The Student Learning Center in the LInC (the SLUG) is currently open during its typical hours of operation, with restrictions on capacity (currently limited to 40 students) and some new policies designed to increase safety.

  • Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Friday from 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday from 1:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

Access to the LInC on Sundays and Monday-Thursday after 6:00 p.m. will require use of your ID card beginning 10/18/20 and is restricted to Honors College students. Through 10/16/20, access requires use of a code on keypads by the north doors. This code was emailed to all Corvallis campus honors students. HC students working in the LInC outside of building hours (6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday) are restricted to the SLUG, Honors College classrooms and adjoining study spaces. When entering and exiting after hours, be sure external doors close and latch. Violation of rules, bringing in non-honors students after hours, or sharing the passcode may result in suspension of after-hours privileges for the entire HC community.

Students accessing the SLUG are required to clean up after themselves according to posted instructions using provided supplies.

Honors College classroom spaces in the LInC - rooms 343, 345, 350 and 360 - are available for student use. Students who would like to use classrooms must check-in and check-out in the SLUG. Please do not use these spaces without checking in. Classrooms can also be reserved in advance in the SLUG.
