Please do this by or before June 30th each year you are here at
By now, the goal is in sight!
It is mandatory to let the WRGP and your advising department know that you will be defending.
Let us know at least two weeks in advance ~~ but a month is recommended.
This will also allow us enough time to schedule a room as well as promote your defense.
The request form can be found here: Defense Information Request for WRGP.
Do to staffing shortage, we do ask that students attempt to find a room on their own first. We will step in and assist if you are unsuccessful or have a particular room in mind.
If you intend on meeting in person: please make sure you choose a room with Zoom capabilities, so that your defense can be seen by anyone who can't attend.
Here are several locations that you can choose from!
Gilmore Annex: https://bee.oregonstate.edu/bee/reservations
The library: https://library.oregonstate.edu/meet-study-here-0
Grad Student Commons: https://guides.library.oregonstate.edu/graduate-student-commons
Campus-wide rooms: https://25live.collegenet.com/pro/oregonstate#!/home/dash
Go online and find a classroom that meets your specific needs for the date/time of your defense.
Then reach out to [email protected] and inform her which room you would like to use, the date of your defense, and times.
As a precaution, you are encouraged to give her two alternative rooms for this event, in the event she cannot secure your first choice.
