Campus Life

PSU multicultural center

Portland State University students are involved in many areas of the campus community. Student involvement is a great way to make a difference on campus, explore personal interests and build your résumé. In fact, students who are involved on campus get better grades and are more likely to graduate.


University Housing gives you the chance to live among your fellow students, in the heart of a great city filled with parks and endless activities.

Our student community is highly involved. With more than 150 different student organizations to join, you will find plenty to engage you when you're not in the classroom.


Student diversity is an important part of what makes Portland State a vibrant and engaged academic community. At PSU we honor, respect, celebrate, and embrace the diverse characteristics that make you unique.


Integrating sustainability into curricula, campus, and community partnerships—that’s part of Portland State’s commitment to addressing global issues such as climate change and poverty.
