Eugene, oregon

We exist to provide Oregonians and their peers from around the world access to an excellent education. We challenge our students to question critically, think logically, communicate clearly, act creatively, and live ethically. We serve the people of Oregon, our nation, and the world through research, teaching, and outreach that benefits humanity, drives innovation, strengthens the economy, and transforms lives.

We have students from all fifty states and more than a hundred countries. Our students, faculty, and staff represent all walks of life. Differing points of view. Every part of Oregon, our nation, and our planet. Because one of the best things about being at a great university is the chance to study, work, play, explore, debate, and engage with people from places you haven’t been. Whose lives are nothing like your own. It’s looking for commonalities while also celebrating differences. Learning from each other. Making the future brighter. Together.

Throw sepia tones on an October morning in 1876. That’s when 155 students showed up for the first day of classes at the University of Oregon. They filed into a looming, four-story building in the middle of a muddy clearing, with workers inside still hammering away on the upper floors and cattle grazing in the pasture outside. From these rustic origins grew one of the nation’s leading research institutions. Today, our campus is vibrant and green, and we’re pursuing the grand challenges facing our state and the world.
