UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
Q: Where can undergraduate and graduate students find information about food insecurity?
The University of Oregon recognizes that student success is impacted by unmet basic needs such as food security and housing security. The campus and community resources in this Guide are intended to support your well-being so that you can meet your academic goals!
Q: I’m very worried about COVID-19 and I need help managing my feelings.
The abundance of news and updates about COVID-19 is making many people feel anxious. The University Counseling Center has gathered a variety of online resources to help the UO community manage concerns around COVID-19.
The University Counseling Center offers teletherapy services (videoconferencing sessions) for students in Oregon, California, Colorado, and Texas (new, April 9). Students can still access in-person drop-in and other mental health services in the University Health, Counseling, and Testing Center building. Students with questions about options for mental health support should call the Counseling Center at 541-346-3227. The same phone number also functions as an after-hours crisis and support line for all UO students regardless of location. See University Counseling Center for more information.

Just like your classes, many of the resources you typically visit on campus are now available remotely. From academic advisors to tutoring services, you can now connect with academic support services over the phone, chat, or video call. Some services may be limited or modified from their normal schedule. If you do not see information about a particular academic service you normally use, contact the office that provides the service or submit your question using this web form. You can download and use the Navigate App to schedule appointments with many of these offices and others at the university.
Departments are now offering remote advising appointments. Phone appointments are available. However, we encourage you to download Microsoft Teams in order for the advisor to share documents on the screen (you can turn off video and have screensharing only)
We know this is a challenging time for our students and communities, and we are here to help. TAEC Learning specialists are available for remote appointments. Tutoring services will be available Spring 2020 beginning Week 2. To ensure we are doing our part to minimize and reduce risk for our students, tutoring will now be accessed via remotely.

Students should consider connecting with an academic advisor to discuss the implications of making this change. For more details and to request the change visit the Office of the Registrar website.
