ASUO Contracted Services and Service Providers

Co-op Family Center

The Co-op Family Center provides affordable, high-quality, early childhood education for children (eight weeks through fifth grade) of UO student families, UO faculty and staff, and the local community. Our community is a cooperative effort between families and center staff to raise happy, healthy, and socially confident children. The Co-op Family Center is located within Spencer View Student Housing.

Lane Transit District

Lane Transit District (LTD) aims to provide reliable public transportation services for those who have limited transportation options, therefore reducing the community's dependence on cars. Students with a UO ID present may ride LTD transit for free.

Legal Services

Currently enrolled, Incidental-Fee-paying UO students are eligible to access legal advice and consultation. Students who were enrolled and paid Incidental Fees fall, winter, and spring terms and are pre-registered and expected to pay the Incidental Fee for the upcoming fall term, are eligible for services during the summer term even if they are not registered for summer classes.

Three staff attorneys are available for advice and consultation. Consultations are by appointment only. ASUO Legal Services attorneys do not provide legal advice by phone. When you call for an appointment, you will be scheduled to meet with a lawyer who handles the kind of problem you're having.

All attorneys are bound by professional ethics including confidentiality. An attorney must keep the confidences and secrets of the client. So must any person who works with an attorney on a case. Information about you or your case will not be released to any third party without your written authorization under any circumstances. You should feel free to discuss your problem openly and candidly.

The attorney will represent each client's interest zealously within ethical guidelines, and will exercise independent professional judgment in determining the merits of each case.

You may obtain legal services independent of the ASUO Student Legal Services Program from any attorney of your choosing at your own expense.

Oregon Student Public Interest Research Group (OSPIRG)

OSPIRG is a statewide, student-directed and student-funded non-profit that works on issues that effect all Oregonians. OSPIRG has been on the campus of the University of Oregon since 1971 when students worked together to bring about a new way of addressing important political issues. The organization is guided by the idea that there are more problems than we should tolerate and more solutions than we implement. OSPIRG is effective because we teach students the skills they need to get their voices heard on campus and in Salem and Washington D.C. where political decisions are made. Get involved to gain skills and learn more about grassroots organizing, lobbying, and media relations.

Oregon Student Association

The Oregon Student Association (OSA) is a statewide, student-led advocacy and organizing non-profit which was established in 1975 to represent, serve, and protect the collective interests of students in postsecondary education in Oregon. Between lobbying in Salem, holding rallies on campus, or helping collect the support of your organization on campus, there are many ways you can get involved in making higher education more accessible and affordable in Oregon. Students can also attend one of OSA's empowering student leadership conferences in the fall (the Oregon Students of Color Conference) and spring (Northwest Student Leadership Conference).
