Is there a way to only list processes of given users in htop? I know that I can select a single user by using htop -u USERNAME, but is there a way to select more than a one person?

Maybe this could help you; First get processid with ps command with u option then, use htop -p commands as below;

while (( n++ < 3 )); do 
{ sleep 3; killall htop;}&
htop -p $(ps -u root -u youruser  | awk 'BEGIN{ORS=","} {print $1}')
