LOCATION

Bushnell University is located in Eugene, Oregon in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It is the third largest city in the state (after Portland and Salem) and is the county seat of Lane County. It is located at the south end of the Willamette Valley, near the confluence of the McKenzie and Willamette rivers, about 50 miles east of the Oregon Coast.

Located in the heart of Eugene’s University District, just across from the University of Oregon, Bushnell University offers easy access to student-focused amenities such as shopping, eateries, bookstores, coffee shops, and much more. And whether you like to bike, run, or just take a stroll, you’ll find it easy to get around and check out the luscious green scenery with the extensive network of famous trails here in “Track Town, USA.”

About the Area

Nestled in Oregon’s stunning Willamette Valley, Eugene sits approximately 100 miles south of Portland and is home to some of the nation’s best outdoor adventures. From Bushnell University’s beautiful campus, it’s a short trip to the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, the fresh snow of the Cascades, or the cool waters of dozens of streams, rivers, waterfalls, and lakes. Visit campus and explore all that Eugene has to offer.
