UW-BSC finalize residence hall request | Business
The University of Wisconsin - Baraboo/Sauk County Campus Comission sub-committee finanlzed a request for proposal and project timeline for a new residence hall on July 23.
According to a release from Sauk County, UW-BSC hopes to have a 100-bed residence hall to offer to students by August 2015.
UW-BSC Campus Comission Chairperson Phil Wedekind said, "No tax dollars will fund this project. [O]ur local government entities and campus will work with a private partener to bring the residence hall to fruition."
According to a study from Baker Tily Virchow Krause LLP, enrollment at the university has grown 5.5 percent over the past 10 years.
Currently, UW-BSC does not offer on-site housing and university CEO Dean Thomas Plegar said the new hall will make the school more attractive to international students and allow for summer programs as well.
