Welcome to the home page of the Marquette University's department of Facilities Planning & Management. Our mission is to provide a safe, clean, healthy, comfortable environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors to our campus. In fact, our mission is stated in three simple words — "Service, Pride, Quality."
On Wednesday, November 2nd, Marquette University broke ground on its new residence hall facility project in a ceremony on site at 17th and Wells Streets.
The $96 million, 750-bed co-ed facility will house freshman and sophomore students. Located on the northwest part of campus, south of Wells Street between 17th and 18th Streets, the facility will feature two 375-bed resident towers connected through the lower levels by dining and campus community space.
The new residence halls, which are set to open in time for the 2018-19 academic year, will feature pod- and suite-like settings, as opposed to the traditional model of large buildings with small double rooms. It will be designed to meet LEED certification standards and will strive to incorporate innovative sustainable practices in the design.
The project team comprises architect and design firms Baltimore-based Design Collective and Milwaukee’s Workshop Architects, and local construction management firm J.H. Findorff & Son Inc.
