Statement on COVID-19

All admissions events, including campus tours, are postponed until further notice, to comply with Oregon Governor Kate Brown's stay-at-home order.

The UO campus is closed to the public, but we're available to answer your questions via email at or by text message to 541-346-1274.

Coronavirus Updates and Information

“Times like these can be stressful and cause anxiety, which is why I encourage each of you to be good to one another and to remember the UO is a welcoming and diverse community that values inclusivity, compassion, and global engagement. COVID-19 is very quickly showing the world that it does not recognize race, nationality, nor ethnicity, so please avoid stereotyping or stigmatizing any particular individuals or groups of people because of this public health emergency. Now is the time to offer kindness, empathy, and support to friends, colleagues, and classmates who may be directly or indirectly affected by the outbreak.”

Dr. Roger J. Thompson
Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management

Seek for Yourself

Enjoy our beautiful campus as our student ambassadors lead you on one of our campus tours, offered six days a week. Start with a 30-minute information session led by one of our admissions counselors and continue to a guided, 90-minute tour. Explore further with a department tour or a special visit event.

Running Tours

Take a running tour. It's the first of its kind in the nation. And that it should debut at the UO is as natural as, well, rubber in a waffle iron. You'll have a chance to see some campus and nearby sites that emphasize the area’s running pedigree while getting a few miles in yourself.

Join UO student ambassadors on a 3.7-mile tour of running trails surrounding the UO campus and discover the history behind Eugene’s nickname “TrackTown USA.” Our ambassadors run at a comfortable pace (10-minute mile) and stop frequently to point out the many landmarks. You’ll still have plenty of time to shower and make it to the general walking tour.
