Throughout the year, University Housing will co-host events with the Teaching and Learning Center, Academic Advising, and the Career Center. Student staff in your residence hall will also tell you about courses that might spark your interests and direct you to even more resources.

Perhaps you need help learning how to cite your sources, or want to find a study space outside of the halls; UO libraries are a great resource and offer you a variety of library support. We encourage you to take advantage of the resources offered by our facilities and expert librarians.
