Give Before You Go

Every year we divert thousands of pounds from landfills and give back to our local Eugene-Springfield community! In true Oregon fashion, we plan to keep rolling and make giving before you go as easy as possible. As you are moving out for the summer, please consider items that can be donated to individuals in need. All donated items will be given to our partner to help our community.

Each residence hall will have bins for donation in common areas and some may even be on your floor. Staff will pick up items multiple times a day to ensure hallways remain free and clear.
