The PSU Urban Center stations are light rail stations on the MAX Green and Yellow Lines in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States, located adjacent to the PSU Urban Center, of Portland State University. The northbound platform is the PSU Urban Center Southwest 6th & Montgomery Street station, and the southbound platform is the PSU Urban Center/Southwest 5th & Mill Street station. The stations opened on August 30, 2009, and for the next three years they were temporarily the southern passenger terminus of the Portland Transit Mall MAX extension, awaiting construction of the PSU South stations. The latter opened on September 2, 2012,[1] and the change made PSU Urban Center the second stop northbound and the next-to-last stop southbound on the Portland Mall MAX lines.

The stations are built into the sidewalks of 5th and 6th Avenue. There are connections to the Portland Streetcar's NS Line and buses.
