The University of Portland has received an anonymous gift of $300,000 from a 1980 alumnus for renovation of the Pilot House. The renovation will cost an estimated $2.2 million, and the project is expected to move forward as additional funds are secured. The project includes a number of major improvements that will provide social, recreational and cultural opportunities to enrich student life.
The Pilot House has welcomed thousands of students and alumni since 1951 and will continue to do so with the proposed renovations. The redesigned facility will be open in the evenings, providing music, comedy, and other entertainment. It will have a comfortable lounge area with seating and a friendly ambiance, serving pub-type fare and beverages.
