University of Oregon
Historic Preservation Program

The UO Historic Preservation Program resides within the School of Architecture & Allied Arts (A&AA). With the support of a major individual gift, the Program recently relocated from the University’s main campus in Eugene to its new headquarters in the 1883 cast iron front White Stag Building in the Old Town district of Portland. The new location houses state-of-the-art facilities – library, classrooms, studios, offices, conference facilities, and woodshop/lab – that will elevate the educational experience for the Historic Preservation Program. The city of Portland offers faculty and students a vast laboratory of physical and cultural landmarks, a strong network of professional practitioners, and significant resources for research, including the Oregon Historical Society archives and the Architectural Heritage Center’s collection of historic building components.
