Coate Hall is a traditional, cube-shaped building that is one of our First Year Experience (FYE) residence halls, and is home to about 380 first-year students. Cube buildings are comprised of two or three, four story cube-shaped buildings, interconnected by hallways between the cubes. Resident rooms comprise the outside walls of the structure, and surround a common stairwell and shared bathroom space. Students live in a double or triple room with others in a "cubed community".
Each cube community is single gender and comprised of 16 rooms. The 34-38 students in each cube create a dynamic, energized, and inclusive community sharing their first year at UWL. Each cube community is led by an upperclass Resident Assistant who is specifically trained to meet the needs of first year student.The term traditional means that residents in this building live in standard double rooms, with a shared bathroom facility.
Students living in Coate have access to opportunities and professional staff who provide foundational support for the success of first year students. A full-time Academic Advisor is available in the basement two days a week for appointments and coursework consultation. There is also a Student Learning and Enrichment Coordinator (LEC) who aims to create social, developmental, and learning opportunities throughout the year.
Coate Hall hosts many events during the course of the year. Residents are frequently shoulder tapped to help plan and participate in events for Coate residents as well as all campus students. Coate Hall is a social environment, which provide numerous opportunities for students to get to know other students and get involved in the UWL and La Crosse community.
