Dejope Residence Hall
University of Wisconsin, Madison
Dejope Residence Hall, located on the shore of Lake Mendota, is named after the Ho-Chunk term “dejope” or “four lakes,” and refers to the Madison area. Continuing this reference to the region’s history, the Four Lakes Market now serves the Lakeshore Neighborhood of campus. The Market features eight dining venues, seating for 450, and has the capacity to serve 1,350 meals during peak periods.
The residence hall contains 408 resident beds on the top four floors, with lounges and study rooms on each floor. The first floor includes a convenience store, café, offices, classrooms, informal lounge space, multi-functional space with seating for 250, a staff apartment, and exterior gathering areas.
The building was developed, sited and designed to achieve LEED-Silver certification. Engberg Anderson worked in association with Mackey Mitchell Architects of St. Louis, MO.
