Shelter for PSU families affected by fires

With tragic and historic fires burning across Oregon, Portland State University is offering a free room at University Place Hotel to any student or employee under an evacuation order due to wildfire. 

Any current employee or student and members of the same household who have evacuated due to wildfire may stay free of charge for up to two weeks at University Place. Please call the hotel in advance of arrival at (503) 221-0140 and present a valid PSU ID upon check in. 

We continue to urge all employees to take care of each other and do their utmost to remain safe during this time. PSU's Employee Assistance Program is available with confidential support and assistance and Human Resources has links on their homepage to additional fire resources. 

As hazardous air quality continues in the region, we urge everyone in the PSU community to stay indoors as much as possible. The health and well being of the PSU family remains our top priority.
