Visit Campus

Take a Campus Tour

Visiting Lewis & Clark is the best way to get to know us. Our three campuses—undergraduate, graduate, and law—are nestled in a forest just six miles from downtown Portland, and we have a free shuttle that will take you there.

Our undergraduate campus spans a ravine and is surrounded by trees, giving you ample space to explore and connect with nature.

Our law school is located next door to Tryon Creek State Park, which is where you’ll find members of our community hiking the 13 miles of stunning nature trails.

And our graduate school has an expansive green lawn that serves as a backyard, commonly listed as our students’ favorite place on campus. It’s also where our bee garden is housed!

Explore Portland

Lewis & Clark is located in the lush hills of South Portland, the city’s “sixth quadrant.” But our beautiful campuses aren’t the entire story—our location offers something that most other schools do not: an ideal setting in a vibrant, progressive city with endless networking, entertainment, and cultural resources.

  • College Outdoors trip

    Getting Outdoors

    The benefits and beauty of the Pacific Northwest are right outside our door. This area contains some of the most spectacular and well-maintained scenic areas in the United States.

    Outdoor Activities

  • Student getting food at a cart downtown.

    Good Eats

    Portland is nationally renowned for its food scene, which includes options for almost every food preference and dietary need. We were even given the title of best pizza in the country from Modernist Pizza!

    Dining Around Portland

  • Portland has concerts, sporting events, and many other activities!

    Things to Do

    It’s impossible to provide an exhaustive list of things to do and see in a city as vibrant and diverse as Portland. We can promise you this, though: you won’t lack for great opportunities to have fun.
