NEW:

  • Starting Thursday, April 2, the University Counseling Center will offer videoconferencing health services for students in Oregon and California. Students can still access in-person drop-in and other mental health services in the University Health, Counseling, and Testing Center building. Students with questions about options for mental health support should call the Counseling Center at 541-346-3227. The same phone number also functions as an after-hours crisis and support line for all UO students regardless of location. Visit the University Counseling Center website for more information.
  • Based on the governor’s March 23 executive order, in-person access to buildings has been limited to those conducting critical operations and services. There are registration processes in place for instructors and those in research-related positions. Updated signs are being placed on building doors this week.
