Visiting Willamette

Take advantage of all the lively activities on our campuses and explore the vibrant communities around us.

We’re in the heart of the Willamette Valley — a region known for its organic farms and wineries — and our Salem campus is only 48 miles south of Portland, an urban cultural and economic hub.

Below you will find resources for our interactive map and printable maps to aid you in discovering our campuses and surrounding areas. Be sure to check out How to Use the Interactive Campus Map if you need additional support, including instructions for printing a customized map.
