Visit the University of Oregon

The beautiful University of Oregon (UO) campus is between downtown Eugene and downtown Springfield and is easily accessible from Interstate 5. Visitors can tour the campus grounds — remarkable for its architecture, art works and arboretum; explore the museums; shop at the bookstore and enjoy the collegiate atmosphere.

Campus tours are offered from the Ford Alumni Center, or download a mobile app and tour the UO's sports facilities, historic buildings, innovative learning centers and museums independently. Founded in 1872, the school is now home to over 25 research centers and institutions, offering over 250 academic programs to more than 24,000 students.

The University District offers a convivial community of student housing, bars, eateries and parks. Stroll or cycle through bustling blocks of businesses tangentially related to the University.
