About Ambassador Apartment Student Housing

The new apartment-style student housing is tailored to upper classmen and older students as an alternative to living off-campus while still providing a real world living experience. This new complex allows these students who are no longer required to reside in residence halls to stay on campus, while enjoying the benefits and amenities of off campus living. Multnomah hopes to foster community and promote academic success for students looking beyond a traditional residence hall environment. 


  • Granite countertops
  • Dark walnut hardwood floors
  • Upgraded fixtures throughout
  • Yard area with outdoor furniture
  • Community rooms
  • On-site laundry facilities
  • Campus Wi-Fi access
  • Cable hookups (for those wishing to purchase service independently)
Students will have their own bedrooms and will only be responsible for paying their portion of the rent- even if the other bedrooms aren’t occupied.


"Relationships are key to the collegiate experience. Living on campus connects students to one another and the University in a very unique way," Assistant Director of Housing Operations Christy Martin said. "Research has shown that living on campus has a positive influence on a student's grade point average, level of involvement in campus activities, retention at the University, and satisfaction with his or her collegiate experience. Our hope is that by providing additional apartment-style housing, more students will thrive in their collegiate experience as they reap the benefits of living on campus."
