Faculty & Academic Connections
In University Housing, we foster a dynamic, close-knit learning environment and make it easy to meet with faculty beyond the classroom. Not only can you be in an Academic Residential Community; we bring your faculty, tutors and advisors to you in the residence halls.
A Faculty Fellow is a professor who holds special tutoring and advising hours for you right here in the residence halls! They also collaborate with students, host events (chemistry demos, printmaking workshops, film screenings, and star viewing parties to name a few), trips, even bike rides around Eugene. You are not just another face in the lecture hall and making personal connections with professors is what the Faculty Fellows program is all about. University Housing provides office spaces for our Faculty Fellows to meet with students privately or in a group.
Advising in the Residence Halls
Your academic advisors come to you in the residence halls after normal business hours so advising can happen in a place where you are comfortable at a time that works for you. They advise on choosing classes for next term, major exploration, declaring a major, degree requirements, course planning, policies and petitions and can even help give advice about academic success. This happens every Wednesday at the Living Learning Center 115 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Weeks 1-10). Residence hall students can sign up for appointments online.
