Laux Hall is one of three First-Year Experience (FYE) buildings at UW-La Crosse. Built in 1964, this coed by floor building supports approximately 250 first-year students in 113 traditional-style residential rooms. As an FYE hall, special academic and programmatic services are offered to meet the unique needs of first-year students.
Laux Hall is a traditional, wing-style, FYE residence hall. Most residents have one or two roommates with whom they share a bedroom. Wing residence halls have long running hallways with student rooms on either side. The term traditional means that residents in this building live in standard double rooms, with a shared bathroom facility, and on floors that are single-sexed.
As part of the FYE initiative, Laux Hall has its very own Academic Advisor in the building! Each year, the Academic Advising Center places a graduate student in each FYE building. This person has office hours each day of the week and is the primary advisor for all undeclared or undecided students in the building. However, the Academic Advisor is available to answer any academically-related questions and issues from anyone. From deciding on a major, to exploring J-term and Summer class options, to changing majors: Laux's Academic Advisor is here to help! Their office is located in the basement of Laux and is a short walk away from any room in the building.
Laux Hall is also home to a Learning and Enrichment Coordinator (LEC). In all FYE buildings, the LEC works to meet the specific needs of first-year students as they transition academically, socially, and personally to the college environment. From study groups to Leadership Institutes to Life Skills seminars, the LEC promotes growth opportunities to all residents throughout the year.
