This is a list of colleges and universities in the U.S. state of Oregon. Seven public universities make up the Oregon University System, and seventeen community colleges are operated by locally elected boards. There are also numerous private degree-granting institutions.

The oldest college is Willamette University, which was established 1842, and is the oldest university in the Western United States. The oldest community college is Southwestern Oregon Community College which was established in 1959.[1] The college has about 14,500 students which have access to the over 150 acres (61 ha) of campus.
