A Resourceful Space
The Women's Center is here to advocate for the best educational and working environment for all genders at the university. We accomplish this by fostering your personal growth and working toward societal change and community understanding. Our office provides a variety of resources such as work, lounge, and meeting spaces, a lactation room and toys for children, a lending library with over 2,000 volumes, and computer and printing capabilities. We seek the advancement of women and people of all genders through activism, leadership, and empowerment.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
There are a variety of resources available to help support you financially through your college experience. If you are looking to apply for scholarships or have questions about what kinds of financial aid you can receive, please explore these resources.
We want you to have a truly exceptional college experience. In order to do that, we have resources to help you through whatever types of challenges you might face. As a part of our community, you are important and we want you to have the support that is best for you.
As Ducks, it is important that we do our best to have healthy relationships. That can mean knowing how to ask and give consent or be there to support a friend. Our resources can help you get connected with information and services to build healthy relationships and feel safe around campus.
Child Care and Lactation Stations On Campus
If you are a parent as well as a student, we have resources to help you. You may be eligible to receive financial support for child care, and our work-life resources might be beneficial to you. There are also a number of lactation stations around campus for your convenience.

OUT/LOUD is Eugene’s queer and trans women’s performance fest, celebrating the music, poetry, and art of queer women, transwomen, non-binary folks, femme identifying people, and AFAB individuals. This year we will be celebrating our 17th anniversary of the festival on May 25th with a diverse performance from locals and out of town artists on the Queer and Trans spectrum.
This event is important to the University of Oregon’s vibrant LGBTQ scene as a space where we are not only validating the work of some of some of the most underrepresented groups, but also engaging in liberating play and enjoying community. The reality of female queer and transwomen artists being paid historically less than their cisgender and/or male/masculine counterparts; supporting events like OUT/LOUD is fundamental to helping queer and trans women safely express their personhood. While we must honor the struggles of queer and transwomen of all races, ethnicities, abilities, and ages, OUT/LOUD offers us the opportunity to also celebrate this resilient group.
