UW-Madison Witte Residence Hall

C.D. Smith was hired as Construction Manager by the University of Wisconsin-Madison to complete renovations and additions to Witte Hall, a pair of high-rise residence halls originally built in 1964.


Known by many students as the freshman dorm, a reputation had become apparent to the contradictory feeling of luxury housing on campus. The dorm renovation and addition is part of a campus master plan to improve and update Wisconsin’s land grant college. Most notably, the project connected Witte’s two towers, adding elevators and creating a central lounge and study area, boasting Bucky Badger Red throughout the interior design.
Witte’s backyard renovations include new loading and drop-off parking, benches, picnic tables and volleyball courts for student use.

  • 101 Two-Bedroom Suites
  • Individual Room Climate Control
  • Individual Room Wi-Fi Device
  • Student Lounge Space
  • ADA Accessible
