Aldrich Hall provide campus residence for students; addi­tional student housing is provided in the Ambassador Apartments.

The John and Mary Mitchell Library is a valuable asset to the educational programs of Multnomah University. The collection contains approximately 119,000 volumes, as well as 100,000+ e-books. With its online catalog and access to a wide variety of electronic databases, the library is well positioned for meeting the research needs of students in the 21st century. Mitchell Library is a part of the multi-state WIN consortium which gives our students access to approximately 3,000,000 titles. Utilization of the interlibrary loan service enables users to obtain nearly any book or periodical article that is not readily available in the campus or consortium ­collections. The library subscribes to more than 15,000 periodicals, directly, and through a variety of on-line databases. These range in content from Bible and theology to Christian education, counseling, science, history, communication, the Social Sciences and the Arts as well as magazines of general interest. Mitchell Library also owns a growing collection of DVDs covering biblical, historical, and theological subjects, as well as films suitable for children and families. Besides library services and classrooms, the building houses the Information Technology Department.

Travis-Lovitt Hall was dedicated in January 2002 and houses the seminary faculty, administration, and classrooms. The main level consists of seven classrooms, including a homiletics lab. On the second level, visitors step into a spacious, relaxing guest reception area. Adjacent to this is the Dr. Pamela Reeve Seminary Community Lounge. The seminary dean, faculty offices, Global Studies department and receptionist offices are on the second level.

Bradley Hall features a lecture/recital hall, classrooms, and practice rooms.

Multnomah’s landmark Terry D. Dirks Memorial Prayer Chapel, at the heart of the campus, offers a peaceful refuge for unhurried moments of prayer, meditation, and reflection.
