WISE Moving to Waters Hall in Fall 2016
WISE (Women in Science & Engineering) will be permanently relocating in August 2016 from Sellery Hall to Waters Hall.  Although we are unable to offer tours of WISE due to renovations happening this summer in Waters Hall, we welcome the opportunity to share further information about the program. Please email WISE@housing.wisc.edu for additional questions. We will once again be offering tours at the beginning of the Fall semester.

Sellery Residence Hall is one of two large tower-style halls in the Southeast Neighborhood of campus that is made up of mostly-freshman residents. This residence hall is located next to the Gordon Avenue Market (one of six dining markets on campus) and some academic buildings like Vilas and Grainger Halls. With basketball courts in its backyard, Sellery provides a great space for residents to shoot some hoops in their free time.

Sellery is also home to two learning communities that provide residents with a number of opportunities to get more involved in academics and extracurricular activities. 

In addition to these learning communities, Sellery has the Sellery Hall Association (SHA). SHA is a group of involvement opportunities designed to help you meet friends and start building your collegiate resume. Sellery also has its own set of academic advisors from Cross-College Advising Services (CCAS) stationed on the first floor of the building.
