The University of Portland announced development plans for a 35-acre campus expansion along the Willamette River.

The new campus, named Franz Campus, will include academic, sports and utilities facilities. It will have two additional soccer practice and intramural lighted fields, a tennis center, a track and field facility and a rowing center and dock.

It will also have an environmental research space, a new physical plant building and more campus parking.

A separate campus improvement project, the Dundon-Berchtold Hall, is currently underway. Construction began this winter on the new 63,000 square-foot academic building that will provide classrooms, offices, a lecture hall and an applied ethics institute.
