The University of Wisconsin - Whitewater has begun construction of a new residence hall to enable long-term campus growth, create swing space for much-needed building renovations, add amenities that today's student desire and enhance options for summer camp and conference operations.
The new hall will house 410 students in pod-style housing, which is best described as two traditional double-occupancy residence hall rooms attached to a bathroom. Each floor will have its own living room with kitchen, eating space and TV. The building will have 100 pods with 20 pods per floor. RAs will have a studio-apartment type unit with two of those units on each floor. Live-in Residence Life Complex Director and Assistant Complex Director staff will have an apartment on the first floor. Common amenities like reception desk, computer lab, meeting spaces, study spaces and laundry room will be available on the first floor.
This will be a fantastic living option for 2nd year and upper-class students in the heart of the campus.
