Neuberger Hall

Project Info

Neuberger Hall
Portland State University
220,000 sf
Estimated Completion 2019
Targeting LEED Gold

Originally constructed in two parts during the 1960s, Portland State University’s Neuberger Hall is home to multiple academic departments, student services and campus administrative offices, and PSU’s largest number of general pool classrooms. It serves nearly all of PSU’s students at some point in their academic careers – and this long overdue renovation project seeks to transform a worn out, fortress-like building into an inviting, modern, and sustainable higher education facility.

In addition to addressing Neuberger’s accessibility and safety issues, this renovation also emphasizes access to daylight and creating connection and flow between inside and outside spaces. New entrances on SW Broadway and the Park Blocks will finally connect Neuberger to both of the active city thoroughfares that surround it, welcoming visitors and improving circulation. Windows along the ground floor and a central lightwell will bring natural light into the heart of this dense building.

Neuberger Hall will also be home to PSU’s new Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
