  1. Shattuck Hall
    In 1915, Shattuck Hall was built as an elementary school, and in 1969, it was acquired by Portland State University. Some of the renovations included converting a dance studio into a lecture hall (and to date, the dance floor is still located under the carpet), and utilizing a swimming pool located in the basement for book storage. The building now houses our professionally accredited Architecture Department as well as architecture labs and studio spaces.
  2. Neuberger Hall
    The main lobby of Neuberger Hall houses the service windows and offices of Financial Aid, Cashier, ID Services, and the Office of the Registrar. There are computers for students to access their records online. Also located in this building are the departments of English, World Languages and Literatures, Conflict Resolution, Math, Philosophy, and Speech and Hearing Sciences.
  3. Smith Memorial Student Union
    Smith Memorial Student Union, the campus student union, is a four-story building with two basement levels. It was built in four separate phases between 1956 and 1963. The building houses Smith’s Kitchen, the ASPSU — Associated Students of Portland State University, 8 of PSU’s 10 cultural &
    resource centers, 200+ student organizations in Student Activities and Leadership Programs, and Diversity and Multicultural Student Services.
  4. Cramer Hall
    Cramer Hall was built in four sections. It houses most of our “ology” departments, such as Anthropology, Geology, Geography, Psychology and Sociology. It also houses Economics and History. Both the PSU Writing Center and the University Studies departments are located on the first floor.
  5. Lincoln Hall
    The recently renovated Lincoln Hall used to be Lincoln High School, and was the first building to be used as classrooms on our current campus. PSU started in 1946 as the Vanport Extension Center for Veterans returning from World War II. It was located in the neighborhood of Vanport, a site of vacant housing for shipyard workers, but the Columbia River Flood of 1948 forced the center to move. Lincoln Hall was acquired for the university’s new home in 1952. Some of the only items salvaged from the flood were a rock and some library books. Students placed the newly named Vanport Rock at the Park Block entrance to Lincoln Hall to show that they wouldn’t be moved again. Lincoln Hall now holds the offices for the College of the Arts.
  6. Science Research and Teaching Center
    The Science Research and Teaching Center (SRTC) houses the Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, and Physics departments. There are special computer labs for the science departments, and a Chemical Consortium for student access. There is also a Vertebrate Biology Museum on the second floor.
  7. Hoffmann Hall and the Walk of the Heroines
    Harrison Hall was renamed Hoffmann Hall in 1998 in honor of alumnus and former professor George C. Hoffmann. This building has the second largest lecture hall, which seats up to 400. The pathway leading up to Hoffmann Hall is called the Walk of Heroines, honoring women who have illuminated our lives, through teaching, being a mother, artist, scientist, volunteer and so much more. There is an Educational Kiosk displaying the heroine stories.
  8. Viking Pavilion at the Peter W. Stott Center
    The Peter W. Stott Center houses Portland State University’s Athletics Department. The Viking Pavilion – opening in April 2018 – is a transformative renovation to the building and will be used as a multi-purpose venue for PSU and OHSU. The 3,400-seat regional event center will be a PSU centerpiece where the campus and community can come together for sports, events and academics.
  9. Branford P. Millar Library
    The Millar Library is a part of PORTALS (Portland Area Library Systems) which is a library consortium, and is also a part of the interlibrary loan system. Students can go to other university and college libraries around Oregon and borrow books that PSU may not have, and request for them to be sent to the Millar Library. Our library has many computers for students to use, several quiet floors, a number of study rooms, and the tutorial Learning Center.
  10. Native American Student and Community Center
    The Native American Student and Community Center opened in October 2003. The Center is the only one of its kind in the Portland metropolitan region, which is home to 20,000 American Indians and Alaska Natives. It serves as a cultural home for native students, supporting their enrollment at PSU and enhancing their academic studies.
  11. Art Building
    The Art Building consists of three levels above ground, a basement level below street level, and attached parking. A retail building adjoins on the south side of the building, which is not part of PSU. The Art Department is headquartered in this building.
  12. Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, Fourth Avenue Building
    These buildings house Engineering, Computer Science, and the Credence Integrated Circuit Design and Test Lab, the only one of its kind in the United States. The mission of this lab is to establish a local, regional and national focal point for innovative research and education in the area of integrated circuit design and testing.
  13. Karl Miller Center
    The Karl Miller Center, which houses PSU’s School of Business, has undergone an expansive remodel. The renovation and expansion of the space has increased the square footage by more than 180 percent. The new construction has added extra classrooms, study rooms, an event space, and a 5 story atrium. The redesigned classrooms encourage more usable space for student participation and group discussion.
  14. Urban Plaza, PSU Bookstore, Academic and Student Recreation Center, Transportation and Parking, Bike Hub, Outdoor Program
    The College of Urban and Public Affairs is nationally recognized for its research and programs and includes the departments of Political Science, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Public Health, Community Health, and Urban Studies & Planning. The Urban Plaza also features retail space occupied by the PSU Bookstore, Pizzacato, Rice Junkies, The Green Line Market, Ben and Jerry’s, and Starbucks. Transportation & Parking Services is located on the ground floor adjacent to the MAX light-rail system. The Bike Hub is located next door and offers affordable options for your cycling needs, including bicycle rental, new bikes for sale, accessories and apparel, maintenance tutorials, and full service repairs. The Outdoor Program offices and gear rental are located on the south side of the ground floor. They are responsible for the coordination of numerous trips and outings throughout the year. They also have an extensive list of outdoor gear which can be rented to PSU students.
  15. University Welcome Center
    The University Welcome Center is a place for all new students and guests visiting the campus to receive information about Portland State. Located in the Academic and Student Recreation Center on the first floor, the University Welcome Center also houses our undergraduate admissions office.
