The University

University of Oregon Campus Buildings

Founded in 1876, the University of Oregon offers academic excellence and hands-on learning opportunities in a welcoming atmosphere. Towering trees shade the 295-acre campus, where students, faculty members, and employees from a wide variety of backgrounds share a commitment to preserving the environment and pursuing innovation in more than 260 academic programs that range from Eugene to Portland and from the coast to the mountains.

Made up of seven diverse regions, Oregon has the ocean, mountains, valleys, high desert, cities, small towns, and almost everything in between. Eugene is known for its unique, exciting mix of arts, culture, education, scenic beauty, and passion for recreation. The Willamette and McKenzie rivers are magnets for water sports and recreation, and more than 100 parks and 2,600 acres of open space offer the perfect settings for any outdoor activity you can imagine. Also an arts and culture destination, Eugene offers festivals, performances and shows year-round.
