Explore Portland State

We offer a variety of virtual and in-person visit opportunities to introduce you to PSU’s academics and student resources. Join us for one of our many virtual or in-person sessions, drop-in at our Virtual Front Desk to connect with an Admissions Counselor or Student Ambassador on Zoom, and stay connected on social media.

Starting June 21, we will begin offering in-person tours. Sign-ups are open for in-person tours of the PSU campus. Our tours feature limited capacity (only five people) and individualized attention with one tour guide per student and three of their guests. Meet with an Admissions Counselor before or after your tour and get answers to all of your questions. Visitors to PSU are required to wear masks or face coverings and maintain a distance of six feet between individuals.
