For each meal, students may choose foods from five dining concepts, including deli, pizza/pasta, ethnic foods, salads and the hot entrée area. Desserts and beverages will also be available.

Eagle Hall is the newest residence hall complex at UW-La Crosse which opened in September of 2011. Eagle is divided into two residence halls (Eagle Maroon and Eagle Grey). Eagle Maroon and Eagle Grey are located close to the Whitney Center (Dining) and the Recreational Eagle Center on the Northwest side of campus off of La Crosse Street.
Eagle Hall 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 four people. Each air conditioned 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 through the front desk (for a fee).
Other amenities include: front desk services, lounges and private/group studies on each floor, kitchen on each floor, game room and piano, computer lab, laundry facilities, high-speed Internet (including wireless throughout Eagle Hall), cable television and land line phone service (for a fee). Also in close proximity to Eagle Hall there is an outdoor volleyball court and two basketball courts.
Students who are in JumpStart will need to move out of their summer residence hall for the three weeks between the end of JumpStart and the beginning of fall semester. However, they can make arrangements to store their belongings and will be able to move into their fall semester housing early. JumpStart students can also volunteer to help with “Freshman Move-in Day”; a day in which our residence halls are bustling with people, and a day that welcomes new students to campus.
