A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday for a 446-bed residence hall west of White Hall, near Starin Road, on the UW-Whitewater campus in Whitewater. Construction of the building is expected to be complete in 2010. It will be the first new residence hall built on the campus in 40 years.
“The new central core of campus will provide significantly improved teaching, learning and living opportunities for students and faculty and staff,” said Steve Summers, interim assistant chancellor of Student Affairs
The dormitory building will also have a computer lab, multi-purpose room and dividable seminar room.
The new facility is also expected to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified residence hall in the state.
