Welcome to Our Campus

Student diversity is an important part of what makes Portland State a vibrant and engaged academic community.

We're Here for You

The people you meet across campus, in classrooms, student housing, advising, student services, the downtown community and beyond, are dedicated to making your university experience welcoming and successful. We seek to serve students of diverse race, gender, ethnicity, culture, age, sexual orientation, religion, political viewpoint, military background, national origin, marital status, or disability.

Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you cannot find what you need.


President's Equal Access Scholarship Application

The purpose of the President's Equal Access Scholarship is to attract outstanding students from diverse backgrounds and experiences, including racial and ethnic backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Portland State University's President's Equal Access Scholars maintain good standing, contribute to the campus learning environment, and share their unique strengths and diverse perspectives through their involvement in on-campus activities and participation in community service.  


Student Groups

Portland State's students are diverse, community-minded, multicultural and creative. Our student groups are a reflection of that. Check out the latest list of student groups on campus. If you don't see a group you are interested in, contact the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Programs (SALP) to find out whether a group that meets your interests is newly forming or to find out how to start a group yourself.
