Making Travel Plans

We know you’re excited about being a Duck. We’re excited, too!

Please wait to make travel arrangements until you have received your confirmation email after registering for the program. Unfortunately, we are unable to change your registration to accommodate previously made travel plans. For instance, we cannot add you to a full session even if you’ve made flight reservations before attempting to register.

We will continue to post updates to this page for student housing for IntroDUCKtion, parent and family hotel accommodations, and more.

Traveling to Eugene


The Eugene Airport, conveniently located approximately 10 miles from downtown and campus, is serviced by Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, United Airlines, and flights connecting from any number of major airlines. For Eugene Airport information, call 541-682-5544 or visit the Eugene Airport website.

Additionally, check out Eugene Airport's ground transportation webpage to get to campus once you've landed. It provides suggestions for taxis, rental cars, and rideshare services like Lyft and Uber. Please refer to our ride-hailing map for designated pick-up and drop-off locations on campus.

Some visitors choose to fly into Portland and drive two hours south to Eugene. Groome Transportation brings visitors from the Portland airport to UO's campus. Portland International Airport's ground transportation webpage is another great resource.
