If there is an emergency, call. If you're not sure, call.

We are dedicated to making sure you have the support and resources you need to have an exceptional college experience at the UO. Wherever you are in your college career or whatever challenges you are facing, we are here to help.


Care and Advocacy Program

The Care and Advocacy Program is committed to providing students with resources and support needed to navigate the UO and have a successful university career. Students may face challenges during college—personal crises, mental health concerns, unanticipated family situations, and unexpected life events that can disrupt a student’s ability to focus on academics. Our program is here to help you navigate these challenges while remaining a student at the university.

Reach out to us by calling 541-346-3216 or filling out the Community Care and Support form.

In order to promote social distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Office of the Dean of Students (DOS) is currently operating with reduced staffing levels and has transitioned to offering most services remotely. Thank you for your understanding and patience as together we work to sustain the health and well-being of our campus community. Please call 541-346-3216 if you need assistance.
