Please use caution when walking through campus at night. The University campus is equipped with lantern lighting along main routes through campus. Because of landscaping and buildings, other areas of campus may not provide suitable lighting for walking at night. All areas of campus are regularly patrolled by UOPD officers. The University is sensitive to light pollution issues - further information on lighting projects can be found on the University of Oregon Planning Office website.
