The University of Oregon offers some of the most extravagant, up-to-date facilities in the nation. The administration is always making the University more appealing, from the expansion of Autzen Stadium to the building of a new business complex. The Erb Memorial Union (EMU) is at the center of the UO campus. It has two coffeeshops, including the ever-popular Buzz, which has an open mic/poetry night on Monday and Friday. The new, infamous Matt Knight Arena is an incredible venue to see concerts and watch our own Duck volleyball and basketball games.

With several renovations underway and constant updating of older buildings, the University is capable of keeping up with student needs by offering the highest-quality facilities. Within the last five years, the University has revamped nearly every building or facility to improve it in some way. A top-of-the-line Student Recreation Center, the best sports arenas and athletic facilities around, and a student center to serve every need are all a part of the UO experience, and you'll be hard pressed to find students who could ask for more.

School Slang
  • EMU: Erb Memorial Union
  • LLC: Living Learning Center
  • Autzen: "It never rains at Autzen stadium." It's a tradition for the announcer to call this out sometime during each football game, and students expect it. Despite the fact that Eugene is renowned for its rain, it's a true fact that it never rains at Autzen stadium.
  • Pit Crew: The UO Pit Crew has tradition written all over it. This is a group of students that wear yellow shirts and vie for a spot in the Pit Crew at the beginning of every season. These are sports-crazy students that attend every basketball game to agitate the opposing team while making more noise that the takeoff of a 747. The "Pit Crew" is an essential part of one of the oldest and most feared basketball stadiums in the country.
  • Street Fair: Usually twice a year, once in fall term and once in spring, the street fair lines the entire stretch of campus on 13th Street. From exceptional Thai food and other dining adventures to plenty of arts and crafts, the street fair is something all students look forward to.
Urban Legends
Deady Hall is haunted.
Favorite Things To Do
Ducks football games are by far the overall favorite activity of students. When it is nice out, people love being active on the grassy areas around campus or play outside sports. Also, students work out in the state-of-the-art Student Recreation Center, listen to a band in the EMU Amphitheater, listen to the On the Rocks acapella singing group, or get their campus buzz from one of many coffeehouses.
