What’s happening at PSU

Portland State University invites you to experience our campus in downtown Portland, Oregon all year round. There’s always something going on at PSU, from concerts and plays to basketball games and art shows. We are home to Portland’s largest farmers market and the city’s newest art museum. Welcome!

Our campus 

We are Oregon’s urban public research university, where 26,000 students power our city with new ideas in action. Our 50-acre downtown campus is a hub for people and events that inspire our community to think bigger and bolder, in Portland and beyond. The best way to discover our campus is with an open mind.

Our City

Portland is our home and our inspiration. We are a short walk or streetcar ride away from museums, concert halls, and the world’s largest independent bookstore. Take the aerial tram to OHSU for a panoramic view of the city, go for a hike in Forest Park, or rent an orange Biketown bike to tour the city. And that’s only the start.
