OSU-Cascades’ new campus is located in the urban core, providing students with a rich experience that blends academics with business partnerships and community integration. This focus is carried into the residence hall for 300 students, which features a central gathering space per floor and a common room where students can connect outside of their classrooms. The residence hall also includes a fitness room, social lounge with pool tables, a central mail room for the entire campus, and campus offices. The dining hall provides eating space on the ground floor and eight 20-student classrooms and administrative offices on the upper floor.
SERA provided architecture and interior design services from design development through construction administration. The design reflects the regional influence of eastern Oregon, with open spaces, clean lines, and wood accents.
