Campus Life

PSU students enjoy endless opportunities

Portland is anything but a sleepy college town. Attending Portland State drops you in the middle of a powerhouse of a city with a dazzling array of food carts, coffee shops, indie bookstores, and charming neighborhoods — all accessible by foot, bike or streetcar. 

Find and explore your passion — be it bouldering in the back country, crewing a dragon boat, or developing leadership skills through our 10 cultural resource centers. You can join one of our 150 student clubs and cheer on one of our 15 NCAA Division I teams. 

There's more than one way to be a Viking. Whatever your identity, preference or background, you can make yourself at home at PSU. We are Oregon's most diverse public university, and we work hard to ensure equity and inclusion for all students. 

The welcome mat is out. Find resources right for you.
