Photo Services

A picture is worth 1,000 words. It grabs your attention, provokes motion, tells a story, and sticks with you.

The photo services provided by Marketing Communications support the mission of the Office of University Communications and are used for visual and informational purposes. Photography taken by Marketing Communications photographers is used in reputation defining communications for the University or Oregon, including Around the O, social media, recruitment materials, and websites.

Photo Databases

We have a curated set of stock UO photography available on this site in the downloads section. However, if you are working on a complex project and want additional photo options, there are two online university libraries with campus-related images that may be downloaded and used free of charge for university projects. Both libraries use keyword searching to filter the image results.

Branded Images


ResourceSpace, is the university’s curated, central image repository and contains the latest images taken by university departments and affiliated photographers, with images from 2010 to present.

The images in ResourceSpace are available to communications professionals on campus. If you are a UO communications professional who currently does not have access to ResourceSpace, you can request access by contacting Marketing Communications at

ResourceSpace is a place to host the best images from around the university and should not be used as a departmental archive or backup location that hosts all of the images from a photoshoot or event.


This library contains older images, from 2014 and earlier. Access to this library is open to anyone on campus.
