University Work-Life Resources, a program in Human Resources, assists students and employees in effectively balancing their personal, family, and community life with work and educational responsibilities. The office coordinates information about campus and community child-care options, resources for families and elder care, and university policies related to children and families. Staff members are available to consult with students, faculty members, and UO employees about child care and other family issues.

ASUO Student Child-Care Subsidy

Funded by student incidental fees, the program pays a percentage of child-care expenses for low-income students. UO-affiliated and licensed community child-care expenses are covered. More information and applications are available from the ASUO Executive office, Erb Memorial Union, Suite 4; call 541-346-0632.

UO Affiliated Child-Care Programs
Co-op Family Center


This independent, nonprofit cooperative accepts children who are between the ages of eight weeks and eleven years. The center primarily serves families who live in Spencer View Family Housing but accommodates other UO student families, some UO faculty and staff member families, and community parents when space is available. Parents may reduce their costs through several cooperative options and may share in the center’s management through membership on the center’s board of directors.

Moss Street Children’s Center


This program accepts children who are between the ages of three months and eleven years. It is described more fully under Erb Memorial Union in this section of the catalog.

Vivian Olum Child Development Center


The center provides a comprehensive program of early-childhood education for children between the ages of eight weeks and eleven years.

Administered by Human Resources’ Work-Life Resources, the center primarily serves faculty and staff families. Student families are guaranteed priority access before community families.
