International Student Support Services & Programs

International Peer Mentor Program

New international students arriving for the first time in this country sometimes experience culture shock, homesickness and may find it hard to make friends or get involved with campus life. In response to these challenges, we foster a student-led program based on the concept of peer-to-peer mentoring. Through relationship building and resource connection, mentors support students on multiple levels while ensuring them a positive experience. We are a community, we have fun and we inspire each other to do great things and maximize the UO experience. Visit our Facebook page. 


International Student Advisory Board (ISAB)

The international student advisory board reports directly to the director of International Student and Scholar Services. It advises about services and programs such as the peer mentor program, writing labs, fieldtrips and recreational programs, and the overall international student experience at the University. ISAB meetings are open to the public. Application process occurs during spring term.

Friendship Foundation for International Students

Friendship Foundation for International Students

The Friendship Foundation for International Students (FFIS) offer friendship and short-term homestay programs for new international students and scholars, including dependents. FFIS offers a Short-Term Homestay program fall, winter and spring terms for new incoming students and scholars, a Conversation Friend program to practice English conversation and a Share Thanksgiving program to celebrate a traditional American holiday with a local family.

J-1 Student Intern Program

The University of Oregon is designated by the U.S. Department of State’s Exchange Visitor Program to sponsor international students under the J-1 Student Intern visa category. The broader goal of the Exchange Visitor Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and the people of other countries through educational and cultural exchanges. Student interns have been hosted by several UO departments including Chemistry, Biology, Neuroscience, Human Physiology, Confucius Institute, and the Center for Applied Second Language Studies.

Connect on Campus

The Mills International Center is a lounge, resource center, study area, and events venue. There is no doubt that it has some of the comfiest couches on campus. There are many to pick from, and they are perfect for studying, hanging out with friends, or just sitting on.

The Mills International Center is a place for everyone. All UO students – both international and American – are welcome!
