Perhaps the most prominent feature of Marylhurst is the prestigious university that shares its name, and the school that many local apartment residents attend.
Marylhurst University is one of the Portland
area's oldest degree-granting institutions, having awarded its first degree in 1897 after being founded by Roman Catholic nuns in 1893. Today, around 1,000 undergraduates attend the private liberal arts institution, including those that are either looking to get started on their career paths and older adults seeking to further their education. Marylhurst University offers a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees, and is renowned among local apartment residents for its beautiful suburban campus and personalized teaching methods.
Marylhurst University is also renowned among local apartment residents for its contemporary art exhibition space known as the Art Gym. Hundreds of artists - both local and national - have had their work shown at the prestigious cultural center, and many famous artists have had their first works published in catalogs produced by the Art Gym. The center has gained wide notoriety as being the first stop for many emerging artists - many of whom also make their home in apartments in the Marylhurst area.
However, the Art Gym is not just for the enjoyment and education of students. Local apartment residents who aren't enrolled in the university are welcome to attend the center's various cultural events, which includes the beloved Marylhurst Reading Series.
