    Olympic Trials updates

    Get the latest updates on U.S. Olympic Trials impacts to campus, including road closures, parking, building access, and security: Thursday, June 23, 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. in Straub Hall Room 145.

    Regularly updated maps of activities are provided by the UO Campus GIS and Mapping Program at http://arcg.is/1Ry8ghN. During the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, everyone in the university community is encouraged to use bus and active transportation whenever possible.


    Wireless network change June 16 may require some updates

    June 14th, 2016

    A change to some campus wireless networks on Thursday, June 16, may require some computer, smartphone and tablet users on campus to take action before they can to reconnect to Wi-Fi.

    Between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. that day, Information Services will switch to a new system for the UO Secure wireless network. UO Secure is the secure wireless network intended for daily use by UO students, faculty and staff.

    The university is switching systems as part of a larger network streamlining project.

    Patrick Chinn of Information Services said the first time people try connecting to UO Secure after the change, they may be asked re-enter their username and password or to trust a new certificate. After doing that, people should be able to connect to the internet.

    However, on some devices — particularly some Macs, iPhones and iPads — users may get an “authentication failed” error. If that happens, users should go to the campus secure wireless setup website and walk through the steps to update the device’s wireless configuration for UO Secure.

    “We don’t want people to be caught off-guard with this update,” Chinn said. “We planned this for a time when most students would be gone and campus would be quieter, so we hope it won’t disrupt the campus workflow too much.”

    This change will also affect the eduroam network, which provides convenient wireless access for visitors from other campuses.

    Anyone with questions should contact the Technology Service Desk at 541-346-HELP (541-346-4357) or techdesk@uoregon.edu.

    June 2nd, 2016

    It’s a good time to travel by foot, bike or bus, and to be extra alert: a busy month of traffic and parking around the University of Oregon is here, and a new website will help people stay on top of the changes.

    The Campus GIS and Mapping Program will have updated maps for any day during the activities at http://arcg.is/1Ry8ghN

    Annual move-out of nearly 4,000 students from the UO residence halls runs Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 10; the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships will be at Hayward Field Wednesday, June 8 through Saturday, June 11; and UO Commencement is Monday, June 13. Then preparations begin for the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials: construction around Hayward Field lasts through June, with the Trials spanning July 1-10.

    Already, since May 29, traffic on 15th Avenue from Agate Street to Onyx Street is limited to one-way westbound. For Commencement on June 13, 13th Avenue from University Street east to Franklin Boulevard and Matthew Knight Arena will be closed for the Commencement Procession. Other changes and closures will come fast.

    UO faculty and staff should be aware of increased vehicle and pedestrian traffic around the residence halls and Hayward Field. Everyone in the university community is encouraged to use alternate transportation whenever possible. Drivers should avoid 13th and 15th avenues, as well as parking lots located near residence halls.

    Changes to traffic patterns include:

    • 15th Avenue from Agate Street to Onyx Street is one-way westbound from May 29-June 5 and again June 14-23; two-way as normal June 6-7 and June 11-13.
    • 15th Avenue from Agate Street to University Street is one-way westbound from June 8-10, and open only to residence hall move-out traffic.
    • Starting June 25, most of the campus portions of 15th Avenue and Agate Street will be closed.
    • Starting June 28, 18th Avenue from Agate Street to University Street will be closed.

    University parking maps and information are at the Department of Parking and Transportation (parking.uoregon.edu).

    Be cautious and plan ahead for the busy roads, but don’t forget to offer smiles, congratulations and a helping hand to our families, visitors and especially, our departing students!
