Housing Master Plan

Architectural rendering of North Campus residence hall

With the opening of Maple Hall and Terry Hall on West Campus, the UW 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 3,000 beds to the UW campus housing system, providing more on-campus living spaces to accommodate increasingly high demand.

5,500 students now live on West Campus, after the completion of the first three phases of the Housing Master Plan. The redevelopment created a vibrant urban neighborhood that is now one of the busiest sections of campus as students utilize new amenities such as District Market, Fitness Center West and Area 01, and travel between their campus home and classes.

North Campus Housing Plan

The North Campus phase of the Housing Master Plan is now underway with the decommissioning and demolition of McCarty Hall and construction of Phase A. When completed, the North Campus phase will replace the 1,400 beds featured in Haggett Hall and McCarty Hall with 2,100 beds spread out across four new residence hall buildings.

The North Campus redevelopment will also include the replacement of the residential dining center for North Campus and the addition of several new amenities.
