Patriot Hall Fitness Center

Clatsop Community College

The 96-year-old Patriot Hall is a centerpiece of the Clatsop Community College campus, located near the mouth of the Columbia River in Astoria, Oregon. The redevelopment establishes a strong new identity for the campus and frames a new plaza and gathering space for students and the community.

New Amenities for the Community

Recently completed, the renovation of Patriot Hall provides active learning and wellness resources for students and community members, including a gym with bleacher seating and the region’s only indoor running track. The project creates instructional space to support new paramedic, mental health and drug & alcohol worker training as well as other credit, job training and community education offerings. It also provides additional space for Veteran support service programs and other student support programs and activities.

Clatsop Community College has opened the doors to the new Patriot Hall, a multi-purpose gymnasium, educational and community space. With support from Energy Trust or Oregon’s Path to Net Zero program, the facility was designed to use 70 percent less energy than a standard building of its type.
