Yes. There are several locations listed in ORS 166.370 which prohibits carry a firearm in a public building or facility, even with a concealed handgun license, including:
Public Schools - The governing board of a public university, the Oregon Health and Science University Board of Directors, the governing board of a community college or a district school board may adopt a policy prohibiting carrying of a concealed weapon (even with a valid CHL) on the grounds of the schools. There must be a clearly visible sign at all points of entry indicating that concealed weapons are prohibited and there must be a notice on the board's website identifying all school grounds subject to the prohibition (ORS 166.377)
PLEASE NOTE: If you plan to carry your handgun, it is important to research the requirements at these locations before you go. Please see the Oregon Revised Statutes for any updated State of Oregon restrictions. If in doubt, contact the facility you plan to visit directly to obtain their policy.

There are a number of requirements to get a purchase permit. You must:
Provide proof of completion of an in-person demonstration of the applicant’s ability to lock, load, unload, fire and store a firearm before an instructor certified by a law enforcement agency.
Pay a $65 fee and submit an application for a permit, along with presenting government-issued ID for the permit agent to determine your identity.
Allow the permit agent to photograph and fingerprint you.
The permit agent must also find that you do not present reasonable grounds to conclude that you have been or are reasonably likely to be a danger to self or others, or to the community at large, as a result of your mental or psychological state or as demonstrated by your past pattern of behavior involving unlawful violence or threats of unlawful violence;
OSSA has created this training program as quickly as possible to ensure that people have access to a training course in order to get a purchase permit. The fastest and easiest way to do that was to modify our existing CHL course to include M 114 requirements. At this time, we do not have a separate M 114 training.
