University of Portland
The University of Portland is an independent, Catholic university of 4,200 undergraduate and graduate students that has been guided by the Congregation of Holy Cross since our inception in 1901. We are a diverse community of scholars that fosters the development of the whole person through teaching and learning, faith and formation, and service and leadership. Committed to the liberal arts as the foundation of learning, we offer more than 1,300 courses, 60 undergraduate programs, and 18 graduate programs of study. Popular fields of study include biology, business, communication, computer science, education, engineering, political science and nursing.
Our location in the City of Portland, in the State of Oregon, means students have easy access to the verdant forests, majestic mountains, rushing waterfalls, and dramatic coastline of the Pacific Northwest. Seattle, Washington is a 3 hour drive to the north, and the California border is 5 hours to the south.
University of Portland offers a vibrant residential community, more than 85 student clubs and groups, and Division I NCAA athletics. International Student Services offer advising and programs to help students not only with the transition to campus but throughout their academic career. Merit-based scholarships are also available to international students.
