Enrollment at Oregon’s public universities hit an all-time high this year, passing 100,000 for the first time.

The University of Oregon rode that wave with a 4.5 percent increase. Enrollment this fall reached 24,447 students, an increase of 1,058 from a year ago.

Over the past two years, enrollment at the UO has grown by 9.2 percent, even though the university graduated its largest class ever last year. International student enrollment this year grew by 17 percent to 2,116, including an increase of 300 from China alone.

The UO has seen its enrollment march steadily up for the past four years. It has now reached the level that UO administrators have cited as the most they can serve without significant new investment in facilities and staff.
