WSU Opens Stewart Wasatch Hall
By Sarah Cutler
Ogden - WEBER STATE UNIVERSITY opened Stewart Wasatch Hall, the first of three new student-housing buildings located at the university’s Wildcat Village.
Replacing Promontory Tower, Wildcat Village will house more than 500 students in its three halls. Stewart Wasatch Hall is 48,400 square feet, Hall 2 will be 88,480 square feet and Hall 3 will be 25,270 square feet. WSU is building all three halls in the village to receive (LEED) Silver certification. The sustainable effort includes installing solar panels.
The new village will have a courtyard with a sand volleyball court, barbecue grills and a fire pit; activity lounges with billiards, shuffleboard and big screen TVs; laundry rooms with web-access notification of availability; energy-usage monitors; on-site lectures; tutoring and other student-support services; Food On Demand campus dining; and a recreational facility with cardio equipment and resistance machines.
“In the past two years, we’ve had great demand from students who want to live in the WSU residential halls,” says Brett Perozzi, associate vice president for Student Affairs. “Dorms that were built in the 1960s don’t provide the strong learning environment required at a modern university. In our new housing complex, we have carefully crafted the design elements to ensure the long and useful life span of Wildcat Village. These buildings will serve students for the next 50 years.”
