Newport Relocation Guide
Newport is located in Lincoln County, Oregon. It was incorporated in 1882, though the name dates back to the establishment of a post office in 1868. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 9,989, an increase of nearly 13% over its 2000 population.
In August 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration moved its base for research ships from Seattle to Newport. The base has about 110 marine officers and a total of 175 employees.
Newport is home to the Oregon Coast Community College, which held its first classes in 1987. The public schools in Newport are part of the Lincoln County School District, and include Newport High School, Newport Preparatory Academy, Newport Intermediate School, Isaac Newton Magnet School, and Sam Case Primary School. Newport is also home to the Hatfield Marine Science Center operated by Oregon State University in collaboration with state and federal agencies. The center conducts research and educational programs associated with the marine environment and serves as a primary field station for the university’s College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences.
