  • Nice apartments located in the heart of downtown Portland. Right next to a MAX line so it's easy to get anywhere from your apartment. As I understand they are planning…

  • I never stayed in the dorms, but I hung out in friend's dorms. They're pretty snazzy! But EXPENSIVE! For $800 a month you could get an apartment by yourself, and…

  • I don't live in the dorms, because they are way too expensive and don't have any options for students with families. I have heard horror stories about bedbugs, but have…

    There isn't a food program, but there are cheap places within walking distance from PNCA. Sometimes the school offers free lunch, but that doesn't happen too often.

    Food is rarely provided on campus, excepting clubs (meager fare) and Student Council (great curry). There are a lot of food carts and restaurants in walking distance, but they can be pretty expensive. I usually pack a lunch, go to Safeway, or pick up some curry from Yo's cart on campus. There is also a little cafe in the main building.

    There's no food and dining at the school, except a coffee shop that is run by one of the alumni. He also runs a food cart by the 3d building that's amazing. His food is great, but everything else in the Pearl is way too pricey. Sushi Land is the only other reasonably priced option.

    Portland has some great food and dining but not a lot of it's cheap. The dorms are conveniently close to a safeway and the school is pretty close to the food carts which give great portions for the price. But most everything else in the Pearl district is overpriced.

    This is a small school so there's no cafeteria but there's plenty of space and kitchens to prepare/eat your food, not to mention the school is in the epicenter of the Pearl district which offers countless refueling options.

    PNCA doesn't have a meal-plan, but right next door to the school's main building sits a Safeway grocery store and a few locally owned or chain-run businesses that, although most on the more expensive side, are quite very delicious and satisfying.

    This community doesn't have fraternities or sororities embedded into its culture, but its community in a way is its own Delta Nu or Sigma Chi in its own small campus population.
