We’re moving! This July, East West College is starting a new chapter in the education district of downtown Portland, Oregon. Our new building will be at 1515 SW Fifth Avenue, on the fourth floor.

Massage school students and clients will be happy to know that our new home is easy to access via public transit, with multiple options for MAX light rail, bus, and streetcar routes. To facilitate a smooth transition, we are providing each student with a transit pass for the month of July, upon request.

Additional amenities at our new location include:

  • 30,000 square feet of totally remodeled space with energy-efficient lighting.
  • Round-the-clock building security, 24/7.
  • An attached parking garage.
  • A multitude of cafes, restaurants, stores, and parks within walking distance.
  • A brand-new HVAC system.
  • Naturally-lit, open areas where students can gather.
  • Covered bicycle parking.
  • A café in the building.

As our president David Slawson notes, “We have been looking for some time for a space to better serve the wants and needs of our students. Our goal is to provide an accessible, beautiful, safe environment in which to nurture the healers of the future.”

If you take classes or receive massage at our Portland school of massage, you’ll want to make note of the following important dates:

June 21st, 2019 – Final day of classes at 525 NE Oregon Street location
July 2nd, 2019 – Sneak Peek Open House for new and current students
July 8th, 2019 – First day of classes at our new location, 1515 SW Fifth Avenue, Fourth Floor

Our phone number (503-233-6500) and website address (eastwestcollege.edu) will remain the same.

Finally, we will continue to offer exceptional massage therapy training continuing education. Nationally-known and locally sought-after instructors will teach CE courses at our NE Oregon street location through June, and in our new downtown location starting in July.
