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 250 students and is designed as a semi-suite style building in which you share a room with one roommate and the adjoining bathroom is used by your room and the room next door, for a total of 4 people. Each room includes two desks, two dressers, large closet spaces, two twin (extra-long) beds, mini fridge, bookshelves, and trash/recycling bin. The beds can be lofted if you desire to gain more floor space. Loft kits are made available at the beginning of the academic year through the front desk.
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.

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.
