Lewis & Clark Campus

The Lewis & Clark campus is located approximately six miles (9.66 km) from downtown Portland, Oregon. Located in a safe residential area, it is surrounded by trees.

Administrative Building

The heart of the campus is the Frank Manor House. The building pictured to the right was the original home of the Frank family estate. It houses some of the administrative offices for Lewis & Clark, including the business offices, undergraduate admissions, and the President’s office.



The AES students take their classes in buildings with other L&C undergraduate students. To the left is Miller classroom building. New  classrooms are wired for Internet access, connecting faculty and students to the latest technologies for teaching and learning.




AES students make use of all the facilities on campus. To the right is the Lewis & Clark library.Open 24 hours a day on weekdays, the Watzek Library provides everything a student could need for studying, from over 120 online databases and full Web access to a cozy reading room. The Library also contains one of the many computer labs on campus.The library building houses the Information Technology department, which offers AES students extensive computer-related support.

Sports Center

The Pamplin Sports Center is open to all students. It has an indoor tennis dome,  competition-size swimming pool, a gymnasium, three basketball courts, a weight room, an aerobics room, locker rooms, training rooms, and classrooms.

Templeton Student Center

The Templeton Student Center houses most of the student activities. In the photo to the right, you can see the entrance to the bookstore and cafeteria. In the bookstore, students can buy all the books they will need for their classes, as well as school supplies and L&C memorabilia.

Post Office

A campus post office is also located in Templeton. At the post office, students can purchase stamps and mail packages. Lewis & Clark also provides a mailbox for each student.




Dining Rooms

There are two places to eat in Templeton Center. Fields Dining Room is a more traditional campus cafeteria primarily for students who live in campus housing. The second cafeteria, called The Trail Room, is a cafe-style dining room open to off-campus students as well as faculty and staff.

There are also two two cafés on campus (Maggie’s and The Dovecote) where students can enjoy an espresso or tea or pick up a snack between classes.

Residence Halls

Students who choose to live on campus are housed in dormitories. They may live alone in a single room, with a roommate in a double room, or with three roommates in a quad. Outside entrance doors are equipped with card readers activated by the student identification card. All residence halls have free internet access.

Some of the dormitories have special sections or themes for students with common interests and pursuits to live together and support each other through planned activities and informal interactions. For example, there are residence halls with a multicultural-theme, a visual/performing arts theme, and an outdoor interest theme.


Students may relax and refresh themselves by visiting the campus art gallery. The Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art emphasizes contemporary art: challenging, provocative, and international in scope. It is adjacent to a historic formal garden overlooking Mount Hood and gives the gallery a distinctive place among the venues for contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest.


Campus Grounds

Much of the Lewis & Clark campus is landscaped with plants native to the Pacific Northwest. There are also more formal gardens, which provide serene settings and spectacular views.
