Fall Celebration Frequently Asked Questions


2021 Fall Celebration - yellow autumn leaves obscured by semi-transparent oregon state outline with yellow words 'law alumni & friends' in yellow letters and 'fall celebration' in white letters

How do I get there and where do I park?

You will find campus to be bustling, as Fall Celebration shares the same dates as residence hall move-in activities.  

We recommend for ease and time, to use a ride share service for events at the Knight Law Center.

The Knight Law Center (law school) is located at 1515 Agate St. in Eugene

We strongly recommend using a ride share service such as Uber, Lyft, taxis, or carpooling. Please ask your driver to drop off at the corner of 17th and Columbia. (You will see road closed signs on 17th.  If there is a parking official monitoring 17th, declare you are attending a Law School function, and you should be able to proceed.

The best route to campus if you are driving will be to avoid Franklin Blvd and approach campus via 18th or via I-5.

If you choose to drive, please park in the Millrace Garage located at 1625 Millrace Drive. Parking is $5/day for the Millrace Garage.
