CGCC Student Housing

Columbia Gorge Community College

Students seeking to enroll at the college have struggled with finding economical, quality housing options in The Dalles for years – the new two-story, 50-bed residence hall will improve accessibility through affordable, long-term housing for students from  throughout the region.

Location: The Dalles, OR

This project is a key feature in building a strong sense student life community on campus. Open lounges on each floor provide space for informal learning and social interaction and have been designed with abundant natural light and views accented by colors and materials that bring inside the unique natural environment of the Columbia Gorge region. Each unit is a suite housing four students and offer a shared living space and shared bathroom with two sinks, toilet and shower.

Other amenities include an enclosed study room, two laundry rooms and bike parking. Located at the very heart of the campus, the facility offers breathtaking views of the Columbia River, a shared common kitchen and outdoor terrace overlook the main campus quad amphitheater.

The facility will complement the adjacent CGCC Regional Skills Center that together were funded through a unique Intergovernmental Agreement between CGCC, the City of The Dalles and the North Wasco School District, utilizing a combination of State funding, Enterprise Zone funds and College debt bonding. Both projects will open in Fall 2021.
