The Multnomah family extends beyond campus limits as many of our students make their homes in the beautiful neighborhoods of Portland. As a commuter student, you can still find community and cozy spaces for studying and relaxing on-campus. Our dedicated commuter student center is called The Den and is located in between the JCA Student Center and the residence halls.
Programs and Amenities
The Den is home to various social, educational, and spiritual programs for commuter students. Faculty and staff members regularly share their stories or what is on their hearts with students at Brunch Chats in The Den. We gather for worship and prayer and we build lasting friendships over delicious food at our commuter potlucks. While events draw students into The Den, the amenities keep them coming back.
Comfortable couches, Free WiFi, a refrigerator, coffee, and a microwave.
Choose Your Living Arrangement
Because Multnomah values the experience and memories that living on campus provides, all single undergraduate students under the age of 21 who take 12 credits, or more, are required to live on campus. If you choose to commute and are under 21, you must be living at home with your parents and will need them with you to fill out this form.
