Unfortunately, no other small electric kitchen appliances may be used in the rooms but can be used in the kitchen space. We also highly recommend purchasing at least a partial meal plan.
Multnomah’s Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program plays an integral role in holistically investing in the lives of our students. FIR takes the well-known care and attention of our professors to another level. It creates more learning opportunities, mentorship, and fosters a deeply-rooted community of Christ-followers who support each other in day-to-day life.
