Aldrich Halls typically house first and second-year students. Rooms are built around a large lounge space in the center of the building – because community comes first! Whether you want to cook a late-night meal in the kitchenette while studying with friends or enjoy a round of ping pong after class, it all happens here. You can expect to eat regular meals in the dining hall with your dorm section, take a day trip to downtown Portland, and enjoy Friday night events put on by the Residence Life staff.
