A New Way Forward for Visitors


A New Way Forward

Birdseye view of campus

Our campus is temporarily closed to visitors in accordance with guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority for higher education campuses. We look forward to seeing you on campus when we reopen. For now, join us for a virtual tour or information session.

Campus Closed to Public, But Outdoors Areas Open

Currently the general public may not access PSU buildings. Only authorized members of the campus community and authorized external parties affiliated with PSU may enter PSU facilities.  But anyone is welcome outdoors on our campus, as long as they respect social distancing practices, wear masks and not enter buildings.

  • If you are not a student or employee and need to connect with a PSU department, please contact them via phone, email or chat to conduct your business remotely. 
  • Any events held on campus are not open to the general public. PSU may impose additional restrictions and requirements. 
  • If you have an appointment with a PSU employee on campus, please contact them directly in advance of your visit to make access arrangements. 

Portland State values its strong connections with the community and its neighbors in downtown Portland.  We look forward to reopening our facilities to visitors once public health guidelines allow.
