Building Momentum

The construction is underway for the new student center

Set to be completed in August, the 40,000-square-foot Hadlock Student Center will feature three basketball courts, an indoor track, a fitness center, a rock-climbing wall, and space for student government and clubs.

When students return for the fall 2018 semester they’ll be welcomed with several new structures designed to enhance the campus life experience, promote a healthy lifestyle and give Bruin athletes a competitive advantage.

It’s all part of an ongoing commitment to provide first-class facilities that you might expect to see at a much larger university while at the same time maintaining the school’s Be Known promise, Christ-centered focus and small-community feel.

The Chehalem Aquatic Center

The Chehalem Aquatic Center had its grand opening in June after completing phase one of a $19.9 million renovation. Located right across the street from campus, the 25,000-square-foot building will be home to the first-ever George Fox swim team starting in October.

A new residence hall (rendering on left), located on the east side of campus, will be completed in the fall of 2019. The four-story building will house approximately 190 students. To make way for the new dorm, crews first had to undertake the difficult task of relocating the historic Villa Road House (below) – renamed the Villa House – 0.8 miles down Fulton and North Meridian streets to the southwest corner of campus, where it will be used for student housing.

Tennis and track athletes will soon have a place to practice and play, rain or shine. Located on the university’s Austin Sports Complex property and scheduled to open in the fall, the PVC-fabric-covered multipurpose facility will measure 320 x 140 feet and feature six tennis courts in addition to a 100-meter straightaway track.
