Fall Term 2020 Resources

This term is different from any that has come before, and we know you have questions and will require additional support. Here’s a list of UO and SOJC quick links to help you get the information and assistance you need.

 

Coronavirus and Campus Safety

UO COVID-19 Resources: Learn the latest about how the university is approaching the pandemic, including health and safety measures on campus.

Residence Hall Move-In Updates: Due to the air quality in some of the residence halls from the wildfire smoke, the university is making adjustments to the move-in times and dates for some students in Earl, Hamilton, and Walton to protect the health of all students and staff.

COVID-19 Testing: All students moving into the residence halls will be tested for COVID-19 before moving on campus. This testing is free for residence hall students, and a negative result will be required before they can move into their rooms. Students received an email explaining how to sign up for a testing date and time and a subsequent move-in time on the following day.

Allen Hall Guidelines for Students: Find out what to expect when you arrive on campus, including building access, reserving computer labs and production spaces, and checking out equipment.

This includes expenses for medical, food, housing, utility, technology, relocation to return home, childcare, course materials, and more.

Students in Crisis Fund: If you don’t qualify for aid from the CARES Act but are experiencing a financial crisis that may negatively impact your academics, you may be eligible to receive financial support from the UO Students in Crisis Fund.
