Multnomah University

Single Student Apartments

Multnomah is able to offer luxury apartment-style living in The Ambassador to single students age 21 and older. Enjoy the independence of apartment housing, convenience of living on campus, and benefit of the natural fellowship and growth that occur from living in a supportive Christian environment.

Completed in 2013, The Ambassador boasts hardwood floors, granite counter tops, large living spaces, and environmentally conscientious construction. 

Unfortunately, there is limited space, so in general, applications are prioritized as follows:

  1. First priority to current residents
  2. Second priority to graduate-level students
  3. Third priority to undergraduate students age 21 and older

Note: Age, program, number of total completed credits, and other factors may also be taken into consideration by MU housing staff when prioritizing applications and room placements.
