Find Your Outdoors

The Outdoor Program's mission is to inspire learning through student-powered outdoor adventure.

We facilitate local trips as well as far-reaching expeditions, and provide a wide range of gear rentals, resources, and clinics. We are also home to the UO Bike Program—providing bike rentals, events, and maintenance classes. We are here to foster healthy and balanced outdoor lives, and as such all our initiatives reflect our core values of adventure, active lives, inclusive community, environmental stewardship, cooperation, and student empowerment.

Bike Program

The Bike Program connects students to bikes and biking resources through rentals, a do-it-yourself maintenance workspace, campus fix-it stations, classes, rides, events, and more. Our knowledgeable staff and students create a welcoming community where Ducks can come together to work on bikes, share experiences, and learn new skills. So leave your car at home, avoid the hassle of parking on campus, and utilize the Bike Program to get the most out of your biking experience.
