Ride programs re-start operations March 2

The University of Oregon’s safe ride programs (including Safe Ride, Designated Driver Shuttle, and UO Campus Shuttle) are resuming operation Saturday, March 2.

Always call the scheduled programs (Safe Ride and DDS) to ensure programs are operating and have capacity; schedule rides in advance whenever possible. Check the UO Campus Shuttle map for operation information and up-to-the-minute shuttle van locations.

Reminder on UO operations

Just a reminder to all Ducks: the University of Oregon does not issue notices when classes, events and operations are on normal schedule. The UO will send notification by 6:00 a.m. on days when a schedule change is necessary because of early morning inclement weather.

Everyone please continue to use caution traveling around Eugene and the Eugene campus.

Campus cautions for February 27

Living Learning Center North and South buildings both have entrances being blocked off to keep people away from possible snow falling from the roofs.

At LLC South, only the southeast entrance is open for use. At LLC North, the north entrance out of Dux Bistro is closed. Restricted doorways can only be used as emergency exits.

A reminder: pedestrians should use caution walking on campus. Many walkways are clear, but some paths and intersections still have mounded snow which can be slick. For best results, look for the cleared areas.

Also be cautious of trees and roof lines that could drop snow unexpectedly.

Respect and follow any signage or tape meant to keep people away from hazardous areas.
