The new residence hall, Cascade Hall, opened in Fall 2014.
Cascade Hall is located on the northeast corner of campus conveniently located adjacent to Washburne University Center and easily accessible from all parts of campus. As a highly sustainable residence hall which focuses on a multitude of community spaces, Cascade reinforces an already developing living and learning community on the Forest Grove Campus.
Cascade Hall is home to 198 co-ed residents. The hall consists of singles, doubles, deluxe doubles, and double suites. This residence hall houses students that are generally 18 years old and older prior to the start of the Fall term.
