Student Activities Center – UW Madison

Located in the University Tower at University Square in the heart of the UW Madison Campus, the Student Activities Center (SAC) is home to more than 250 student organizations.  This centralized area creates a collaboration hub previously not present for these organizations that were spread out on campus. It provides organizations with a cubby space or storage locker, not to mention all the benefits that come with the creation of a brand new building.

Some of those benefits include state of the art meeting and conference rooms, access to Madison’s largest green roof, study areas including a study lounge with a fireplace, a multipurpose room equipped for dancing, student-art lined gallery hallway, kitchen organizations can check out for cooking, coffee cart and vending machines, not to mention numerous windows, comfy chairs, computers, lockers, and a bridge.
