Our Urban Campus

ˮ students socializing in the Park Blocks

The heartbeat of the city

ˮ has been an integral part of downtown ˮ, Oregon since the 1950s. From our 44-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 ˮ State as the best college location in America.
