MBC Student Life

MBC is on a 25-acre campus in an urban setting in Portland, Oregon, not far from Portland.

MBC does not have fraternities or sororities.

MBC has a thriving Commuter Life. In fact, more students participate in Commuter Life than any other on-campus activity.

Other popular student organizations at MBC include Residence Life, Student Government, Voices Scholars and Spiritual Life.

MBC students' favorite campus traditions are Welcome Back BBQ, Lion Launch and Late Night Breakfast.

MBC Housing

MBC offers on-campus housing. Students are required to live on campus through sophomore year. First year students are guaranteed on-campus housing.

Most MBC students live off campus. In 2021, 45% of undergrads at MBC lived in some kind of on-campus housing and 55% of students lived off-campus or commuted to MBC. There are 312 spots available in on-campus housing for all 365 undergraduates. In the 2020-21 school year, 164 students chose to live in campus housing. On the weekends, about 50% students stay on-campus. First year students are allowed to park a car on campus.

MBC Athletics

At MBC there are a variety of athletic options for students interested in joining a sports program.

Intercollegiate sports are the highest tier of college sports and can be very competitive. Intercollegiate teams are regulated by the NCAA, funded by the university, and compete against teams from other universities. The division of a sports team depends on the size of the university, funding, and competition level. An intercollegiate school team will be Division I, II or III, with Division I being the highest level.

Club sports are not regulated by the NCAA and are a great option for students not interested in trying out for an intercollegiate team. Club sports are usually student run but can also be funded by the university.

Intramural sports are the most casual and informal. Intramural sports are often free and require very little time commitment.

Let's take a look at the athletic options available at MBC:

Is MBC Safe?

College is like a home away from home. Whether you're walking to class or coming back from late-night studying (or partying!), it's important to feel safe on campus.

Multnomah University is patroled 24 hours a day by trained security. The MBC campus has emergency telephones or alarms for students to use anytime of day or night.

MBC offers late-night transportation or safety escorts for students. Campus housing is secure and dorms can only be accessed with secure key cards.
