Centennial Hall


Centennial Hall open for business

After a nearly two-year period of construction, UW-Eau Claire's first new academic building in more than three decades opened to welcome the start of the 2014 spring semester on Jan. 21. The approximately 182,000-gross-square-foot building houses the university's College of Education and Human Sciences administrative units; significant new classroom space for use by the entire campus; the departments of education studies, special education, English and languages; and select student support services.

Many of the classrooms in Centennial Hall are equipped with Smart Boards and flat screens and have technology to support iPads and other electronic devices to provide students with the best possible experiences and education. The building also features collaborative learning spaces, several group work rooms with computer hookups and a cyber café. The building's three active learning classrooms have flat panels, interactive whiteboards and semicircular desk units where students can work on projects together. 


Centennial Hall serves as a source of pride for the entire campus community. You have the ability to join in in that pride by taking advantage of the naming opportunities available for spaces in Centennial Hall and across the entire UW-Eau Claire campus. Your gift provides permanent and significant resources to the university that will benefit generations of Blugolds.

Dr. Katherine Schneider, Dr. Sally Webb and Dr. Vicki Lord Larson, all emerita faculty at UW-Eau Claire, along with the L.E. Phillips Family and Presto Foundations have sponsored a statue modeled after Dr. Schneider’s guide dog, Luna, to commemorate the work of guide and service dogs. The statue will be installed later this spring and will be located on the second floor outside the Student Success Center.
