Cascade Hall Construction

Cascade Hall, a new sustainable residence hall, opened in Fall 2014 on Pacific University's Forest Grove Campus. Built to support our growing undergraduate population, Cascade Hall focuses on open spaces, technology, and a supportiving living and learning community for undergradautes.

Enrollment at Pacific University, the only university in Washington County, is strong, with more than 3,600 students in undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. Our undergraduate students live on the Forest Grove Campus.


We celebrated the first steps in this exciting project with our university community, partners and friends at our groundbreaking on Oct. 10, 2013. President Lesley Hallick and Board Chair Mindy Cameron '65 were on hand for the festivities. Our alumni, students and friends were on campus for Homecoming that week.
