Eagle Hall is Expanding for Fall 2014!
All rooms in Eagle will become triple rooms and be more affordable for everyone living there!
Eagle Hall, UW-La Crosse's newest residential living facility, opened in the fall of 2011. This LEED Gold certified residence hall is divided into two residence halls (Eagle Maroon and Eagle Gray). Eagle Maroon and Eagle Gray are located close to the Whitney Center (Dining) and the Recreational Eagle Center on the Northwest side of campus off of La Crosse Street.
Each residence hall houses roughly 350 students and is designed as a semi-suite style building in which you share a room with two roommates and the adjoining bathroom is used by your room and the room next door, for a total of six people. Each room includes three desks, three dressers, large closet spaces, three twin (extra-long) beds, mini fridge, bookshelves, and trash/recycling bin. The beds are lofted to gain more floor space.
Other amenities include: front desk services, lounges and private/group studies in each community, kitchen on each floor, game room and piano, computer lab, laundry facilities, high-speed Internet (including wireless throughout Eagle Hall), cable television and local phone service. Also in close proximity to Eagle Hall there is a volleyball court and two basketball courts.
Within Eagle there are 3 unique Living Learning Community (LLC) options. The Social Justice Community, the Global Village and the Outdoor Recreation Community.
Living Learning Communities integrate topic-driven learning within a dedicated living community of fellow students. Within an LLC, your peers and you will strive to apply knowledge outside the classroom, creating a true partnership of academics and real-world application. Living with a group of 28-38 other students will expand your residence hall experience to the furthest degree of education.

Global Village Community
The Global Village Living and Learning Community (LLC) is designed for domestic and international students to live together; immersing themselves in culture and learning from each other about the world we live in. The Global Village community is a diverse community of students who share common interests ranging from foreign language studies and cross-cultural understanding to the discussion of world affairs. This community provides a cross cultural experience for students interested in broadening their understanding of world issues and cultures. The Global Village increases opportunities for international and domestic students to live and learn together through this common living environment. If you have an interest in living in a community like this please contact Chris Dziekan, Assistant Director of Residence Life (email@example.com).
Social Justice Community
The Social Justice Living and Learning Community (LLC) is intended to be an inclusive and accepting community that has a focus on social justice and diversity. The Social Justice community will actively explore equality, peace and genuine respect for others. Students will live with others who share similar passions and values to build a close community while forging friendships in this living environment. Together students will live, learn and explore social activism, social change and the philosophical foundations of justice. If you have an interest in living in a community like this where you would learn about social, political and economic injustices, causes of oppression and various forms of privilege and power please contact Chris Dziekan, Assistant Director of Residence Life (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Outdoor Recreation Community
The Outdoor Recreation Living and Learning community (LLC) is designed for students who have a passion and an interest for outdoor activities and the environment. Students must be open to challenges, have a desire to gain skills outside of the classroom, participate in extracurricular activities and events relating to the outdoors. The UW-La Crosse campus location is a perfect locale for experiencing a variety of unique natural resources and destinations. Outdoor experiences accelerate student learning about themselves and others. The UW-L Outdoor Connection has the equipment, trained staff & knowledge of the area to be able to facilitate this rich learning environment. The core components of the Outdoor Recreation LLC will be an Environmental Studies Course, residence hall and campus based events, wilderness trip experiences and skills workshops. Students in this community will take a class (Environmental Studies 201) together and there is an additional $200 fee each semester through the UW-L Outdoor Connection to cover the expenses of the 4 outdoor trips planned each semester. If you have an interest in living in a community like this please contact Chris Dziekan, Assistant Director of Residence Life (email@example.com).
When you apply for housing at UW-La Crosse, you can note your preference for participating in a Living Learning Community. By doing this, you will be taken to a separate application that will allow you to apply for the LLCs.
