EXPANDED SAFETY 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 the UO Police Department's (UOPD) non-emergency line 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.
