New roles, spaces for Parking and Transportation and UOPD

Story Aside Info

For years, the university's parking and transportation services were housed with public safety, in Straub Hall facing 15th Avenue.

The two departments have split, and both have moved – Straub Hall is being renovated and will be used for academic purposes when it reopens.

UOPD moved its patrol and operations base to a station at 15th Avenue and Walnut Street in 2011. Parking and Transportation moved in June 2013, when the Straub remodel began.

The current locations:

University of Oregon Police Department

2141 E. 15th Ave. (corner of 15th and Walnut Street)
