    Beware phishing attempts using “UOAlert!”

    January 10th, 2017

    Some University of Oregon community members received e-mails recently with the subject “UOAlert!: Final Warning,” that asked the recipients to “confirm” e-mail information.

    These were “phishing” attempts from an unknown sender that should be deleted immediately. The UO will never e-mail students or employees and ask them to click a link and enter personal information.

    Legitimate UOAlert! emergency notification e-mails may contain links for information (primarily to this Alerts page, but those links will be for reading and information only, and will not ask for passwords or personal information.

    Any time you receive an e-mail that looks suspicious (misspellings, strange addresses, poor syntax or grammar), or that asks for personal information, please immediately forward the e-mail to UO Information Services at

    UOAlert!: Campus Status

    January 8th, 2017

    January 8, 2017 – 2:15 pm

    Members of the University Community,

    We expect the University of Oregon to be open on Monday, Jan. 9, however, all classes are canceled, and the new term will officially start on Jan. 10.

    While temperatures are expected to warm considerably in the Eugene area by tomorrow morning, the impact of snow, ice, and extreme cold stretching from Northern California to Portland and beyond has made it extremely challenging for many students to return to campus in time for classes tomorrow. There have been numerous flight delays and hazardous road conditions in many areas on the west coast. For this reason, we are canceling classes on Monday.

    We encourage students, faculty, and staff to use caution and stay safe as you travel to and around campus, and we specifically ask that faculty continue to be flexible for students who cannot make it to campus in the next several days due to continued travel-related delays.

    UO Campus Planning and Facilities Management crews have been working overtime to make safe designated walking paths around campus, but some areas may remain challenging early Monday. We encourage everyone to please use caution and plan for extra travel time.

    Below you will find a list of resources. Visit for continuous updates as weather conditions continue to evolve.
