Pepperdine University Hosts Moore Haus Renovation Celebration in Germany
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
Pepperdine faculty, staff, and alumni gathered on June 3 to celebrate the unveiling
of the newly renovated Moore Haus facility, the University’s International Programs
campus in Heidelberg, Germany.
Built in 1906, Moore Haus facilities include a library, a computer lab, administrative offices, dorm rooms, a student center, and a faculty apartment.
The new designs feature redefined and remodeled residential, study, and recreational spaces with improved traffic patterns and increased student capacity, as well as improved technologies for academic, residential, and personal use.
The living space for the resident-faculty family was also expanded and relocated to the tower, which provides them with additional privacy and brings all students into the main house.
“One of the real advantages is that this will allow more students to go to Heidelberg for their international program,” says Charles F. Hall, dean of international programs and associate professor of psychology. “The building could hold only 40 students before and can now hold 56. It also allows more common public student areas for studying and relaxing.”
Pepperdine purchased Moore Haus in 1965, and the facility serves as the first and oldest of the University’s international properties.
