Room & Board

This year we are offering housing and meals as separate packages, as follows:

We are going to be in different on-campus housing this year, and are very pleased to say that it is a newer building with elevators and air conditioning. We are very excited to be able to offer this housing choice. Housing will again be a series of small apartments of four single rooms with two shared baths and a common area each. There is also a small kitchenette (stove and refrigerator) in each unit, in case you wish to store some soda or juice or make tea or instant coffee. However, minimal cooking and eating utensils are supplied; you should plan to bring your own if desired. These apartments are non-smoking facilities. Children cannot be accommodated.

Even though this housing has an elevator, please indicate if you will need a first floor room and/or cannot use stairs when you register. If you wish to share the apartment with someone specific, please note that on the registration form; otherwise, rooms will be randomly assigned.

If you need to stay over Sunday night, there is an additional charge of $70.00. This includes Sunday dinner and Monday breakfast.

While we will be in a newer residence hall this year, it will still not be luxurious housing. Basic bedding is provided, but not much more. You may want to bring some amenities such as a clock, a radio, a desk lamp, hangers, or a favorite blanket, as well as ear plugs if you have trouble sleeping. You might also want to bring your own wash cloth and towel; although provided, they are very basic.

 Off-Campus Housing

There are many places to stay in the Beaverton or Hillsboro that are within a half-hour’s drive from Forest Grove. Forest Grove has a few places to stay close by, including:
• Best Western University Inn 503-992-8888
• Best Value Inn 503-357-9000
• The Grand Lodge 503-992-9533


There is a fully operating cafeteria on the campus serving three meals a day. This year we are able to offer everyone a choice of meal packages, either three meals daily or lunch only.

Whether you are staying on-campus or off, you can purchase a lunch package which will allow you to have lunch in the cafeteria Wednesday through Sunday. This can be especially handy if you are staying off-campus and would prefer not to go into town for lunch each day. The cost of the lunch meal package is $65.

If you prefer to have your meals provided, you can purchase the full meal package. This full meal package will allow you to have each breakfast, lunch and dinner in the cafeteria from Tuesday dinner through Sunday lunch. Though highly recommended for those staying on campus, this option is available to everyone independent of housing choice. The cost of the full meal package is $175.

 If you do not purchase one of the meal packages, you can purchase breakfast or lunch in the Bistro on-site on a day-to-day basis. Options may be more limited on the weekend. You cannot purchase individual meals in the cafeteria, but you may bring a lunch from home and eat in the cafeteria.

Pacific University is situated in the heart of downtown Forest Grove. Many small restaurants are located within walking distance for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
