The University of Oregon Greenhouse Facility comprises more than 6,000 square feet of greenhouse space and a one-acre field to support research and teaching activities. The facility consists of a small greenhouse on the fourth floor of Onyx Bridge Hall, two large greenhouses near Campus Operations, and the Quonset with an incubator, growth chambers, drying ovens, potting bench, and more.  The Greenhouse Facility serves as a core facility to support the research and teaching missions of faculty and students in multiple academic departments and institutes across the university, as well as multiple universities throughout the country. The facility is staffed by a part-time greenhouse manager and by student workers.
