Attend an Event

When you attend an event at the University of Oregon it's good to have some inside knowledge.

First, yes it does rain here, but not every day. We recommend layers and a raincoat as a precaution, but believe us when we say you won't always need it. Second, you are in a track and field and wellness mecca. Bring a pair of running shoes and enjoy the trails, landscape, and beautiful views. Third, we suggest checking with your event organizer to get a list of things you may need to bring along—for groups staying overnight on campus, linens may be provided so you can save yourself the hassle, but please check ahead of time.

We hope you enjoy your time in Eugene and save some time to experience our college town and the beautiful surroundings.
