Student Services and Support at Marylhurst

At Marylhurst, we recognize there are many factors that go into your success as a student. We provide many support systems and services, for student populations large and small.

Campus Ministry

Honoring the longstanding, inclusive ministry of our foundresses, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, Campus Ministry supports individual spiritual growth among people of all faiths. We provide spiritual guidance and emotional support to all students, on campus or online. We offer opportunities for prayer and ritual, ecumenical and interfaith dialog, community service and outreach. We reach out to spiritual and secular communities alike to encourage healing and peace. Most importantly, Campus Ministry helps the Marylhurst community to respect the uniqueness and dignity of each person.

Disability Services

Marylhurst University is committed to ensuring that all students have equal access to its academic programs. Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students have the right not to be discriminated against or treated with disrespect based on an actual or perceived disability. They are entitled to access all university programs if “otherwise qualified” to participate and if the accommodation does not fundamentally alter the academic program. Students will need to submit appropriate evidence (documentation) of disability from a qualified medical or psychological professional as that is an integral part of determining appropriate accommodations.

Student Food Pantry

Marian Hall // Kathleen Kaczor, Campus Minister // 503.534.4066 // kkaczor@marylhurst.edu

The Student Food Pantry is a large cabinet stocked with non-perishable food items, on your left as you enter Marian Hall.

All Marylhurst community members who are in need of food are welcome to access the student pantry and take what they need. If you need to access the pantry when Marian Hall is locked, check in with reception in B.P. John; security will let you in.

Everyone is invited to donate to the pantry.

Bring commercially sealed, non-perishable food items to:

  • Main lobby next to reception in B.P. John Administration Bldg., or
  • Main entrance of Marian Hall

Monetary donations can given under the “Other” category and specified as “Student Food Pantry” through our giving form.

Housing - MarylhurstAt the present, Marylhurst does not offer on-campus housing. So we have compiled resources to help you  find a place to live in Portland and surrounding areas.

SALT – Financial Planning and Resources

Marylhurst University has partnered with the American Student Assistance (ASA), a nonprofit organization, to provide financial guidance for our students and alumni.

ASA runs a program called SALT that helps our students and their families make smart financial choices for life. You can take advantage of services to help you wisely and effectively manage debt, whether you incur it paying for your education or through personal expenses. SALT also augments the campus services we provide to help you find scholarships, internships and employment opportunities.

Student I.D.

Reception, B.P. John Administration Bldg. // 503.636.8141 // reception@marylhurst.edu

Your Marylhurst I.D. card serves as both your student I.D. and Shoen Library card.

To obtain a Marylhurst ID card bring a valid form of photo identification, such as a driver’s license, to the reception desk in BP John. We’ll take your photograph and make your card in minutes!

If you’re an online student, or not able to come to campus during business hours, call or email the registrar office to request an I.D. card without a photograph. (Sorry, for security reasons, we cannot accept submitted photos.)
