Pacific Hall Renovation

Pacific University is excited to share a construction update which will improve the student experience and support academic programming long into the future.

In March 2022, the Pacific Board of Trustees approved a project to complete the full renovation of Pacific Hall on the Forest Grove Campus. The renovation will create additional classrooms and computer technology labs and improve student services offices, as well as address necessary infrastructure upgrades. 

Construction begins immediately after May Commencement 2023, and the building is expected to reopen in Spring 2024. Stay tuned for updates on the construction process and the great new amenities coming in 2024 in Pacific Hall!

Finish work continues throughout the building as we look forward to wrapping up the bulk of the remaining construction activities, cleaning, and punching spaces in the next six to seven weeks.

Spaces will begin to come ready for final cleaning, AV install, and furniture moving in mid-December. As a whole, the building will remain closed for full move-in until substantial completion and temporary occupancy on Jan. 10, 2024. The construction fence comes down the following week on Jan. 17. 

Door frames have been prepped and painted, and lighting and MEP trim is being installed throughout Level 2. The next couple weeks will see the team moving into installing equipment and accessories before rough clean and flooring install.
