Residence Hall Renovations

UWL Residence Life has embarked on a new phase of residence hall renovations which started with Laux Hall in 2019. We are committed to communicating clearly with students and families about the impact of these renovations on their UWL experience.

Sanford hall is scheduled to be renovated in spring 2023.  Sanford Hall will be fully operational during the fall 2022 semester and will continue to house UWL students and Residence Life staff.  Students and staff will be required to move to new rooms on campus by the end of the fall semester.
