UW-Green Bay to Open New Residence Hall in Fall of 2024

Posted on 4-18-2023

Groundbreaking Ceremony Tentatively Set for May 15th, 2023

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is excited to launch its latest campus expansion with the construction of phase I of a new residence hall, set to open to students in Fall of 2024. This is UW-Green Bay’s first new residence hall in more than 12 years.

The new hall will be home to 200 students and specially designed for (but not limited to) first- and second-year students to increase social and cultural opportunities, foster common-interest learning communities and support degree attainment. It will offer both two-person and four-person apartments with an array of shared collaboration and recreation spaces. Upon completion it will become the largest residence hall on campus.

The new hall is the latest strategic investment in UW-Green Bay’s on-campus housing to enhance the educational and community experience at every stage of a student’s university journey. In recent years, nearly every residence hall and many apartment facilities received renovations and improvements. The new residence hall will replace apartments that have been renovated a number of times and have now exceeded their useful life.

“We know that students also learn where they live, so we’re thrilled to begin construction on our newest and largest residence hall, which will be a shining example of how UW-Green Bay is providing a comprehensive student experience that includes a strong co-curricular experience,” said Gail Sims-Aubert, Interim Vice Chancellor for for University Inclusivity and Student Affairs.

The new residence hall will be located on space near the Mauthe Center and the Kress Events Center.
