Viking Days

Students assemble at outdoor event in South Park Blocks

Viking Days is a weeklong series of events and activities held each fall that invites you to explore Portland State University's urban campus as the new academic year begins! Whether you're a brand new student or employee discovering the PSU campus for the very first time, a returning member of our community, or a visitor ready to explore our downtown location, we welcome you!

Party in the Park

Each year, Party in the Park draws thousands of PSU students to the Park Blocks for a day of entertainment and the opportunity to connect with student organizations and campus activities. Explore campus resources, and enjoy free food and music as our in-person Party in the Park returns this year!
