Building History

 

Sackett Hall was built as a women's dormitory and finished in 1948. It was built to help alleviate a severe student housing shortage on campus due to the post World War II enrollment surge. It is divided into four quadrants with two wings per quadrant. It was dedicated to Beatrice Walton Sackett, a member of the Oregon State Board of Higher Education and alumni, in the spring of 1950.
