About Campus Crime Alerts
The University of Oregon sends Campus Crime Alerts to all students and employees through official uoregon.edu email when certain issues are reported on campus property and immediately adjacent public property that represent a serious and ongoing threat to people on campus property.
Reported crimes that are considered on a case-by-case basis for notification as campus crime alerts include murder or non-negligent manslaughter, robbery, sexual assault, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and arson; hate crimes, which have bias as the motivator for any of the previous crimes as well as theft, simple assault, intimidation, damage or destruction of property; or offenses including domestic or dating violence or stalking. If any of these reported situations represent a serious and ongoing threat to people on campus property, a Campus Crime Alert will be issued by email.
Campus Crime Alerts would not typically be sent for issues like disorderly conduct, graffiti or vandalism, simple assault, or crimes between people known to one another that do not threaten the population at large. Campus Crime Alerts are also not sent if an arrest or apprehension ends the serious and ongoing threat.
The UO will also send out emergency notifications as UO Alerts emails and text messages when it confirms a significant emergency or dangerous situation on the campus property that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees.
These practices are consistent with federal law and are standard at peer institutions nationally.
The UO does not receive timely and accurate information for incidents that occur outside its campus patrol and boundaries, and the UO will not typically or regularly send notices for such off-campus incidents.
Students, employees, and families can find information about crime in the City of Eugene on the website for the Eugene Police Department. Information about on-campus and off-campus crime can be found at crimereports.com.
