Expanded Safety Resources and Services

In response to the unusual increased criminal activity in the campus area, the University of Oregon is expanding many safety measures for our students.

The UO urges everyone to report criminal activity (such as a break-in or intruder, robbery, or assault) immediately to 9-1-1, or for non-emergency situations on campus, to UOPD at 541-346-2919. Please report by phone and make sure that a report has been taken; get a case number from the agency if possible.

You are our top priority. 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.


Crisis Response and Prevention

The Office of the Dean of Students 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.

Dean of Students crisis response staff offer drop-in hours every business day from 1:00–5:00 p.m. in Oregon Hall suite 474. Staff can assist students in problem solving, navigating university policies and processes, and referring students to other helpful resources both on and off campus.
