While convenience is often the number one reason for living on campus, you’ll find much more than just a place to study and sleep here at Multnomah. It is why we call it Residence Life. You’ll join the many students who make our campus their home.
Living on Campus
When you live on MU’s campus, you are part of a family. Whether it’s attending events put on by your RA or having movie nights with your roommate, you will be making lasting friendships and memories.

Because of the high-value MU places on-campus community living, all single undergraduate students under the age of 21 taking 12 credits or more are required to live in residence hall housing by the first day of the semester. Exceptions to this policy are made for students living with parents or family members over the age of 30.
You must be a degree-seeking student enrolled at least three-quarter time (9 credits) in your program to be eligible for campus housing. Audit and guest student credits do not qualify.
Research generally concludes that living on campus has a positive influence on a student’s grade point average, level of involvement in campus activities, persistence toward a degree, and satisfaction with his or her collegiate experience overall.
Living on campus will help you get connected in the community faster, keep you in close proximity to resources that you need, and expand your educational opportunities.

Your home away from home.
You’ll be part of a family. Experience what it’s like to live, pray, and grow together. You can live in clean, comfortable housing just a short walk from classrooms, the JCA, and the dining hall. Whether you’re working out in the gym, sipping an Americano at Roger’s Café, or studying in a lounge, you’ll feel right at home. You’ll also be minutes from downtown Portland and refreshingly close to mountains, sand dunes, ocean waves, bike trails, and more.
Faculty in Residence Program
We are committed to implementing new, holistic ways of investing in the lives of its students. One of the unique ways Multnomah fosters a deeply rooted community of Christ-followers who support each other in day-to-day life is the Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program. This Oxford model of learning involves a member of the Multnomah faculty living in student housing. Currently, Rob and Leslie Hildebrand live in the community of on-campus housing with our students.
