Located next to the small city of Lake Oswego 10 miles south of Portland, Marylhurst is in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by the natural splendor of Oregon.
A main city bus line runs from downtown Portland directly to campus. Mount Hood is one hour east and provides year-round skiing and snowboarding, and the beautiful Oregon coast and beaches are one hour to the west.
Situated between urban and rural, mountains and the ocean, Marylhurst is an ideal place to experience the Pacific Northwest.
