Useful Contacts and Information
Eugene and campus are generally safe places – just make sure you use common sense. During the evening, the well-lit streets of downtown Eugene are generally safe. However, it is not recommended to be alone on campus or in downtown Eugene at night or in darker places. Be sensible — don’t walk alone at night.
