Tigard is only 10 miles southwest of Portland, south of Beaverton. It’s home to many of the major metropolitan area’s working and student population, particularly those studying at nearby Lewis & Clark College. The city is known for its historic and highly walkable downtown, filled with niche shopping, local eateries, and watering holes. The Fanno Creek Trail provides easy transit and access to all downtown amenities, many of which have seen significant upgrades and renovations in recent years all along Main Street. During the summer, when Portland hosts its Rose Festival, the Tigard Festival of Balloons takes place in Tigard’s Cook Park near the city high school. Two farmers markets grace the area, as well as more than 540 acres of green space, parks, and natural areas. There’s also an annual Downtown Art Walk and Downtown Street Fair.
With plenty of big city convenience and small town character, Tigard has more than enough housing options for area students to find everything they need.
The city is divided into 13 distinct “areas,” although some go by their own monikers. Area 5 is known as the “Tigard Triangle,” positioned at the center of Hwy 99W, Hwy 217, and I-5. Housing options are available throughout the Triangle area, as well as being scattered to the north along 217.
Immediately to the south, Area 6 contains the bulk of downtown, including City Hall. Woodard City Park and Fanno Creek Park add green space to the city scape, and residents enjoy easy access to all major amenities as well as major transit.
Further south along 99W, Areas 8 and 9 contain many housing options, as well as Cook Park, the city’s largest park. Additionally, two golf courses and Little Bull Mountain help residents of the many apartment complexes in the area enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
