Visit the UO

The best way to decide if the UO is right for you is to check it out yourself. Register for a campus tour. Or visit the Office of Admissions, located on the second floor of Oregon Hall at the corner of 13th Avenue and Agate Street, which is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

Campus Visits

The UO hosts campus visits Monday through Friday, during most months, at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m., and on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. All campus visits begin with a 30-minute information session followed by a 90-minute walking tour. Information sessions cover:

  • the UO's status among the top 2% of public universities
  • opportunities to conduct original research
  • our graduates' success
  • Global Oregon, diversity and the campus community
  • Eugene: a community focused on the arts, outdoors, the environment and TrackTown USA
  • questions and answers

Immediately following the information session, UO student ambassadors will lead guests on a walking tour through the main campus.

Be sure to register for campus tours in advance and check our online schedule for holiday closures.

Students who need to discuss special circumstances or desire an individual appointment may call the Office of Admissions at 1-800-BE-A-DUCK. The UO is pleased to welcome guests with disabilities or others who need special assistance; please request accommodations in advance.

Transfer Student Information Session: Students who have already enrolled in coursework at a 2 or 4-year institution after high school graduation are especially encouraged to attend a transfer student information session.  These sessions are currently offered the third Friday of each month at 1pm.  Simply register for the 1:00 p.m. campus visit session through the registration link.

Campus visits begin and conclude at the Ford Alumni Center information desk at the corner of East 13th Avenue and Columbia street.

To arrange a special tour, contact the Ambassador Program at 541-346-1274.

Parking on Campus

Free on-campus parking is available to prospective students and their guests who are visiting.

To get to the garage, drive along East 13th Avenue and turn onto Columbia Street just west of the Ford Alumni Center and proceed to the garage. After you have parked, take your ticket with you and have it validated at the information desk inside the alumni center.
