The Pacific University Eugene Campus opened in 1992 offering undergraduate and graduate programs in the College of Education. In 2014, the College of Arts & Sciences added a master of social work (MSW) program to the site.
Situated in the heart of downtown Eugene, the campus is ideally located for students looking for an urban, but manageable, experience. The campus shares the block with Kesey Square, a public space used for gatherings, performances and public art. Pacific students, faculty and staff enjoy easy access to numerous restaurants, shops, coffee houses and craft breweries that line the downtown blocks. Eugene’s 5th Street Public Market is within easy walking distance, and Voodoo Doughnuts, Sizzle Pie Pizza and Starbucks are all within the block.
Eugene ranked ninth on Livability.com’s Top 10 Best Downtowns in 2014. Entrepreneur Magazine named the city the top town in the country for Green Scenes: Where Capitalism Meets Eco-Consciousness. Eugene also has been designated a Gold Level Walk-Friendly Community by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.
