The Barbara Hochberg Center has replaced the two level,5,963 GSF building with a 40,000 GSF "green" certified facility on 611 Langdon Street.
The new facility includes multiple spaces for students to gather in a community setting for recreation, meals, classes, lectures, concerts, social events and studying. The community terrace, café, staff offices, and spacious lounge are located on the main or sidewalk level to create and encourage interaction with the greater campus community.
In step with UW-Hillel’s longtime commitment to social justice and environmental stewardship, Hillel meets Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) “Silver” certification standards for a “green” building. The board feels it is UW-Hillel’s duty, and its long-term financial advantage, to adhere to government measured standards of sustainable and responsible development. The Board envisioned the facility to be both an educational and social tool to increase the awareness of green and sustainable design practices on the University of Wisconsin campus and the greater Madison community. Construction commenced in January 2008, and the building opened to the public in August 2009. We encourage you to visit the new Hillel facility next time you are in Madison; the staff would be happy to give you a tour.
