Housing Master Plan


Housing Master Plan Guides Future Plans

With the opening of Maple Hall and Terry Hall on West Campus, the University completed the first half of its decade-long Housing Master Plan. The $850 million comprehensive redevelopment of UW campus housing now will be focused on North Campus, where five new buildings will replace McCarty Hall and Haggett Hall. Work on the first phase of the North Campus redevelopment is underway.

When completed, the redevelopment will add over 2,000 beds to the UW campus housing system, providing more on-campus living spaces to accommodate increasingly high demand.
