East Hall has served as an administrative and academic space since it was acquired by Portland State College in 1966. East Hall was originally an apartment building designed by the architect, Charles W. Ertz, for real estate developer, Ezra I. Nixon. It was constructed in 1924.

The building is currently home to PSU's Office of International Affairs. Previous residents in East Hall have included the School (later College) of Urban and Public Affairs (UPA) beginning around 1987-1988 when the original UPA building, Francis Manor, was demolished to make way for the School of Business building. UPA relocated to the Urban Center Building in 2000-2001. Prior to UPA's tenure in East Hall the building was itself home to the School of Business Administration until the completion of the School of Business Administration building (now Karl Miller Center) in 1988-1989.
