Dundon-Berchtold Hall

In August 2019, Dundon-Berchtold Hall opened its doors at University of Portland. It has 17 classrooms; 35 faculty offices; 12 informal and formal gathering spaces, including 4 conference rooms; and the 146-seat Brian J. Doyle Auditorium. It is also home to the Dundon-Berchtold Institute.

The 17 classrooms in Dundon-Berchtold Hall have mobile instructional podiums with touch screen controls, a camera, and software to capture lectures, as well as dual drop-down screens, true color laser projection, and white boards.

The lobby has a high-definition Planar digital touch screen with interactive video and wayfinding. The Brian J. Doyle Auditorium includes a video wall with a display area of 79 square feet, as well as options for video recording and streaming.

The second-floor student lounge has four collaboration areas that have 50” digital displays for presentations and content sharing, and two areas use Microsoft’s Surface Hub 2S interactive display with video conferencing, screen mirroring, and digital white boarding.

The building is in the process of acquiring LEED Certification at the Silver Level.
