UW-Green Bay looks at community partnership to increase housing for students

Growing enrollment at UW-Green Bay brings with it an issue that community partnership can remedy. Supply could not meet demand for on-campus housing this past school year, according to Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Campus Climate, Eric Arneson. Students and parents alike will be encouraged by a new project by DeLeers Construction with a new apartment complex being built this summer that could host about 100 more UWGB students as early as fall 2018. Currently UW-Green Bay can house 2,000 students. See the story by wearegreenbay.com.
