Since 1950, the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) has been the gathering place for campus activities, community interaction, and socializing at the University of Oregon.

We provide students with a safe place to explore new ideas and take risks, an environment that fosters real-world experience and a process that allows students to learn at their own pace—all within the framework of staff support and guidance.

We also provide commonplace services that make it easier for students to achieve their academic goals, whether it be affordable child care, healthy foods, ATMs, or computing labs that are open 19 hours a day, seven days a week.

EMU Mission

The mission of the Erb Memorial Union is to provide an open, inclusive, and resource-rich community where students and staff collaborate to inspire and sustain extraordinary programs and services that promote diversity, social interaction, and growth.
