Campus Night Safety Improvement Suggestions

Every year, the University of Oregon holds a "night safety walk" shortly after the change to standard time. Staff from departments such as Campus Operations, University of Oregon Police Department, Enterprise Risk Services, and the Office of the Dean of Students, gather with interested students, employees and community members, to tour the UO campus and share ideas about lighting, landscaping, or access improvements could make the campus safer after dark.

The Annual Campus Night Safety Walk for 2016 will be held Thursday, November 10 at 5:30 p.m., meeting in the Swindells Room (Room 230) at the EMU. Anyone is welcome to attend and participate; pizza will be provided.

Following each year's walk, Campus Operations distills the suggestions, and seeks funding to complete projects raised by the campus community. Many of these are completed each year, to gradually and consistently improve nighttime safety on the UO campus. 

Campus community members are invited to share their suggestions below. Please describe the on-campus location you have in mind, and the type of improvement that you think would improve safety. Thanks for your participation!

Describe any areas on UO property that could be safer. Please be specific about each area's safety shortcomings (too dark or lights broken or burned out; narrow walkway; foliage blocking view; uneven or damaged pavement; etc.).
