New Student Orientation (NSO)

Arrival Information

So, how do I get to L&C?

Well, you have a few options.

If you are driving, Directions to L&C (pdf) can be found here in this easily printable PDF file. There is also a Map of the Campus that may be helpful upon your arrival.

Lodging Information for parents or new students who have to arrive before August 28th can be found here. Sorry, but you won’t be able to move into your room until Wednesday, August 28.

There will be continuous shuttle service to and from the airport, train station, bus station and campus on Wednesday, August 28th from 8am - 3pm. Look for NSO Volunteers in bright orange t-shirts at the airport around baggage claim to direct you to the shuttle. If you are arriving at the airport, train station, or bus station stay tuned for a survey to let us know that you’ll be needing transportation. 

If you arrive outside of these hours you will be responsible for your own transportation to campus. Go to our transportation page for more information about transportation options in Portland.

International Student Arrival Information

International Students please fill out a different Arrival Information (form) to arrange alternate transportation. More information about arrival can be found on the International Student Webpage for new students.

You do not need to fill out this form if you are arriving by car, if you are participating in a new student trip, if you are an international student or student athlete, or if you have other transportation to campus.
