Construction Updates

Portland State University has decided to close Stratford as a residence hall, starting July 2017. While the building has served the PSU residential community well for many years, the building is 90 years old and is nearing the end of its lifespan. The building will be temporarily repurposed as office space during the Neuberger Hall renovation project.

The building is set to be demolished in 2019.
