University Park is named after Portland University, a Methodist college which was founded in 1891 in a split from Willamette University. Due to financial difficulties, the school closed in 1900. The campus was located in what is now the University Park neighborhood and later became the home of the University of Portland. The original campus building, West Hall (renamed Waldschmidt Hall in 1992), still stands and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
