The University of Portland has several theme housing options for students to consider. Theme house descriptions are listed below. Please contact the Office of Residence Life for more information.
Faith & Leadership House
Provides for the faith and leadership development of undergraduate scholars who will become leaders within the Christian community. Requirements of this program include a one-credit theological course each week during the academic year, a three-credit program-related course during the year, monthly spiritual direction, regular volunteer service within the local community and a house service project each semester, daily personal prayer, regular common prayer integrated into the schedule of the house, and regular common meals. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to apply. More information about the Faith & Leadership house.
Located in Tyson Hall and devoted to sustainability education and action. The "Green House" is a place for students to foster and celebrate their common interest in learning to live and work in a sustainable way. It provides space and incentives for students to use theoretical and practical knowledge (such as ecology, economics, politics) in the pursuit of sustainability in personal lifestyles and campus education and action.
Living in the theme house furthers the goal of decreasing the University of Portland's environmental footprint and helps develop skills that we all need in the 21st century.
