It is therefore mandatory that all UO students use the UO email account that they have been provided. Because your UO e-mail will become your primary student contact while you are at the UO, please check it frequently. For information about managing your UO e-mail account, see the Duck ID self-service page at https://duckid.uoregon.edu.
