Welcome New Students
Let’s be honest–moving to a new city and starting school in the middle of a global pandemic is challenging! Pres House is here to connect you to community so that you have a home and support during your time at UW-Madison.
We know many people are zoomed out and meeting new folks can be challenging. That’s why we’re excited about our new virtual space Pres House GatherTown where you can meet up with others and explore what happens in a way that’s more like being in-person at Pres House.
We are committed to supporting community health and closely monitor Dane County Public Health. For all in-person events, face masks and following health protocols is required.
