How We Get to Campus 


 ·         Save money and get exercise by walking to campus!

 ·         If leaving campus at night, walk with a friend and use lighted pathways.


 ·         Bike and park near the front door of any building for FREE. 

 ·         Contact the UO Bike Program to rent a bike for the term or day or to learn how to fix your own bike.

 ·         Keep your bike safe:

o   Lock to a rack with a U-LOCK through the frame and front or rear wheel.

o   Rent a bike locker or space in a bike cage.
