Check in will occur from 10:00 am-5:00 pm on campus in the Erb Memorial Union in the Lease Lewis Crutcher Room (023). If you have a late arrival we will ensure you receive all necessary check in materials.
All participants will be staying in a University of Oregon residence hall.
Residence Hall address:
1333 East 15th Ave Eugene, Oregon 97403
The residence halls you will stay in during the program will provide linens for your bed however they do not include towel service.
This program includes room and board from June 30th-July 12th which means there will be breakfast,
lunch and dinner available each day of the program EXCEPT on the day of the excursion, July 6th, when participants will be responsible for their own lunch. We suggest participants budget approximately $100 of personal spending money, especially if you intend to buy gifts or souvenirs. A typical dinner at a restaurant in Eugene may cost $15 - $25.
Debit/credit cards are widely accepted in businesses in the U.S. If you plan to use a card while here make sure you notify your bank or check their foreign transaction fee. You can also change money when you arrive in the first major airport in the U.S.
You may also be able to change money in some banks.
While staying on the University of Oregon campus, you will have consistent Wi-Fi access so it is unlikely you will need to buy a SIM card, data or cellphone for your time here. If it is a concern, data packages and SIM cards may be available in major airports (such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco) upon arrival.
