Barbara Hochberg Center for Jewish Student Life
With more than 5,000 Jewish students, UW Hillel in Madison, Wisconsin has one of the largest and most active Hillel programs in the country. Incorporating over 30,000 square feet (plus an additional 10,000 square feet for parking below ground), the new facility provides much needed space for numerous Jewish student groups to gather. Comfortable lounges provide space for informal gatherings and a formal dining room for sit-down meals allow Hillel to enhance their kosher meal plan.
The new building also offers a well-equipped library with enhanced resources and book collections, electronic media and a seminar room for study and workshops. Other features of the facility include an attractive café, a fitness room and a 400-seat auditorium. This modern, state-of-the-art facility is LEED Gold Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
