Building Updates

Blumel Hall received a GOLD level LEED certification! 

Portland State University has closed St. Helen's as a residence hall for the 2018-2019 academic year. While the building has served the PSU residential community well for many years, the building is in need of updating. 

St. Helen's reopen for the 2019-2020 academic year and will be home to our new Second Year Experience program.
