Summer WAVE | University of Portland

Summer WAVE

Welcome, Advising, Visitation, and Engagement


Join us this summer and kick off your UP experience with an action-packed preview of college life! Summer WAVE is a fun way to meet other students and learn about Portland. There will be opportunities for parents and supporters as well.


Your time on the Bluff is going to be epic! And when you attend Summer WAVE, you'll gain the momentum to make the most of every second. 


Get to know your fellow Pilots, future classmates, and new home on The Bluff! Discover the best study spots around campus, favorite neighborhood coffee shops, how to get around the city, and so much more.


Set yourself up for success! Meet faculty in your discipline and learn all about the people, platforms, and resources available to help you chart an academic roadmap that achieves your goals.


Dive deep into campus life- play a game of pickup hoops in the Beauchamp center, enjoy farm-to-fork meals in The Commons, join your peers for a night of fun at Pilots After Dark, and stay the night in a residence hall.


All new incoming UP Students are invited to attend Summer WAVE free of charge! You'll snag your first piece of UP gear and get an invaluable sneak peek into your next four years. Spots are filling up fast - make your deposit and register today.
