Where to Find Safe Sex Resources at the University of Oregon

As a college student, sex can be exciting! Some people may be entering the adult world and discovering their sexual pleasure, as well as exploring sex with other people. Unfortunately, unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you do decide to have sex with a partner, it is always safe to be sure to use contraceptives. Luckily, the University of Oregon has multiple resources for safer sex. Here are some of the locations where you can find supplies such as condoms, female condoms, and birth control.

ASUO Women’s Center

The Women’s Center in the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) is located on the ground floor in room 012. Open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, the Women’s Center provides free condoms, flavored condoms, dental dams, as well as free menstrual products.

TIP: The Women’s Center is one of the only places on campus where you can find free printing (5 page limit)!
