Our Urban Campus
The heartbeat of the city
PSU has been an integral part of downtown Portland, Oregon since the 1950s. From our 50-acre campus, students can walk to internships, bike along the Willamette River, and catch a city streetcar for free. It’s no wonder Niche ranks Portland State as the best college location in America.
Connect on Campus
Life at PSU is as exciting as our city. Join one of our 200 student groups. Swim, take a fitness class or rock climb in our modern student rec center. Get care in our student health and counseling center. And find all the support you need to succeed.
Safe and Welcoming
Portland is recognized for its friendly neighborhoods, scenic walking blocks, public transit options, and innovative solutions. On campus, PSU safety officers and health and resource centers ensure you have a safe and welcoming experience.
Discover a vibrant city known for its locally roasted coffee, farm-to-table restaurants and lively music scene. Powell’s, the world’s largest independent bookstore, is a short streetcar ride from campus. And the Pacific Ocean and Mt. Hood are both within a 90-minute drive.
