Choose from one of four residence hall types: single, double, triple or suite style.
Marshall Hall, built in 1864 and expanded in 1963, is the only remaining building on campus from the early history of Edgewood College. The property was owned by Samuel Marshall, one of the original founders of M&I bank, eventually sold to Wisconsin Governor Cadwallader C. Washburn, and then finally donated to the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters in 1881 who began the transition of the property into what it is today.
East Regina Hall
East Regina Hall
East Regina is the most recent addition to the residence halls at Edgewood College. It consists of mostly double rooms with community bathrooms and lounge spaces on each floor. Residents also enjoy easy access to the Phil's Cafeteria on the first floor of Regina, as well as the chapel and classrooms.
West Regina Hall
West Regina Hall
Regina was built in 1957 as part of an expansion plan for the college. This hall carries on the original name of the school the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters established in the late 1800s, the St. Regina Academy.
