In the past two years, LaSal, Wasatch and Stansbury halls have been demolished. Promontory Tower will come down in the near future. Wildcat Village, featuring three new buildings, will stand in their place. Phase one of the new residential community is now complete. Phases two and three will be up and running in the near future. When finished, Wildcat Village will have 172,150 square feet of space and will house more than 500 students. Designed to encourage a sense of com-munity, Wildcat Village will feature activity lounges, common kitchens and eating areas, and other amenities. Even the semicircle positioning of the buildings fosters a com-munity feel by opening onto a courtyard with playing fields, a volleyball court, fire pit and other amenities. “Wildcat Village represents a new era in residential living for students,” said Brett Perozzi , WSU associate vice president of Student Affairs. “The new halls will allow WSU to capitalize on new technologies. Design elements have been carefully consid-ered to maximize the longevity and useful life span of Wildcat Village. These facilities will serve students for the next 50 years.” Share your memories of WSU residence halls at weber.edu/wsumagazine and look for a full feature in the spring 2012 edition of Weber State University Magazine .
