Barnhart Student Message: Fire Incident Follow Up

This message was sent to Barnhart Hall residents after a fire incident in the building on January 28, 2022.

Earlier today, a small fire in a resident’s room in Barnhart Hall required an evacuation of the building. We wanted to reach out and let you know that this occurred if you were not aware of the incident. Emergency personnel were on the scene and determined this fire was accidental and caused by a candle. At this time, there is no known further risk. 

All residents have been cleared to enter the building and our facilities staff are working on cleaning up the incident in the affected room.

Student Message: University Housing Isolation and Quarantine Updates

This message was sent to all residents on January 7, 2022.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Eugene community, the University of Oregon is preparing for additional cases among students on campus. In response, for the safety and well-being of our students, and developed in coordination with Lane County Public Health, the UO is updating our COVID-19 isolation protocols. 

For residence hall students who may need to isolate due to COVID-19, the UO will provide an isolation space on campus, or in a local hotel, to the extent possible. In the event that isolation spaces reach capacity, students living in residence halls who test positive will need to isolate in their rooms following the current UO COVID-19 exposure guidelines

All first-year students at the UO live on campus. Admitted students will get an email once they can log in and register for housing—this will be within two weeks of being admitted to the UO. The earlier you register, the more prioirity and options you have when selecting your room. 

Also, you don’t have to be a first-year student to live on campus! If you are a returning student who is currently living in the residence halls, you can register for housing now and select your own room before any new students. There are many benefits to living on campus after your first year, learn more about living here next year.
