New housing available for UW-Fond du Lac students
FOND DU LAC (WLUK) -- New student housing is available for college students in Fond du Lac.
A ceremonial ribbon cutting Wednesday marked the opening of Vue Campus student apartments.
The privately-managed building will offer two and four-bedroom fully furnished apartment-style suites with on-site resident assistants.
While students of any college in Fond du Lac can live there, the building is adjacent to UW-Fond du Lac.
University leaders believe having student housing on two-year campuses helps the future of the school.
"This represents a whole new world. Now we can have students who live here and study here and it creates the opportunity for us to spread our wings and welcome students from far away," said UW Colleges and Extension Chancellor, Cathy Sandeen.
The building also features a 24-hour fitness center and study rooms.
Students will move in at the end of the month.
