University of Wisconsin Whitewater Ma'iingan Hall:CNP

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Ma’iingan Hall

Ma’iingan Hall is a five-story, 400 student facility for first-year students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The residence hall features a unique design with housing areas organized into pods, ensuring a comfortable living environment. The building is fully accessible and contains two elevators that serve all levels.

Each pod comprises two spacious double occupant bedrooms and a conveniently located bathroom accessible from a shared entry space. This innovative layout offers students a higher level of privacy compared to the traditional dormitories on campus.

The upper floors feature spacious centralized lounge, fostering a strong sense of community among residents. On the first floor, residents have access to a well-equipped computer lab, dedicated study rooms, versatile multipurpose areas, a fully equipped kitchen, a convenient laundry room, and a welcoming front desk and lobby area.

GRAEF provided structural engineering on the project. The facility opened to students in October 2019.
