“Pres House Apartments is not only a community of people living in the same place, but more importantly, a place where the value of ‘community’ is built.”
Drop-In Community Dinners
Drop-in Community Dinners are one of our most popular building-wide events. Once a month, we invite Pres House Apartment residents to stop by Lower Hall for a free informal dinner, typically prepared by our talented chef, Laura Andrews. Community Dinners provide the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with roommates, as well as to get to know new neighbors.
In the 2019-20 year, Community Dinners will be held from 6:00-7:15 pm on Wednesdays once a month. The 2019-20 dates are:
Sept. 11 / Oct. 9 / Nov. 13 / Dec. 11 / Feb. 5 / Mar. 4 / *
*Community Dinner is not taking place in April due to coronavirus and the cancelation of all in-person gatherings at UW-Madison.
Update as of Spring Break: we’ve moved to a virtual Afternoon Tea for the time being! Drop in to our weekly Zoom call on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00. Grab a snack, fill your mug, put on cozy clothes and let’s catch up. We want to hear how you’re doing and keep spirits high. See weekly emails for Zoom link.
Ever miss after-school snacks? We sure do. That’s why we instated Afternoon Tea, a gathering held each Wednesday from 2:30-4:00 in the Pres House Apartments main lounge. Enjoy free snacks, beverages, and conversation with your fellow residents and staff. Or, if you prefer, bring materials to study and let the snacks recharge you. Either way, we hope Afternoon Tea provides the perfect place to feel supported, take a well-earned mid-week break, and connect with friends!
Get to Know Pres House Apartments Program Staff
Pres House Apartments is lucky to have two full-time staff whose job it is to support residents and design programming with you in mind. Ginger and Becca are eager to get to know residents, and to provide guidance you may need as you learn to balance various parts of life. Struggling with a roommate or family member? Having difficulty adjusting to life in college? Both Ginger and Becca provide friendly, knowledgeable, and safe environments to talk through these and any issues residents may face.
Ginger and Becca organize the scholarship programs and building-wide activities, so if you have feedback or suggestions for additional events, stop by their offices! Ginger’s office is at the west end of the 6th floor, and Becca’s is in the same location on the 2nd floor. Both are typically around Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. Or, you can reach out by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
To help you have a positive and healthy living experience, we also provide a Roommate Agreement, a tool to help our residents discuss and set expectations for your shared living spaces. View, download, and print here: Roommate Agreement PH Apts.
Pres House Church Activities
We should start by answering a frequently asked question:
Do I need to be religious or a member of Pres House Church to live at Pres House Apartments?
The answer is no. Not only do you NOT need to be a member of Pres House Church to live at Pres House Apartments, you do not need to have any religious affiliation. We are open and welcoming to residents of any religious background or none at all. PH Apartments is owned by the non-profit Presbyterian Student Center Foundation (Pres House), which works to support student and resident well-being, but it is important to us to maintain a living community where all residents are free to live out their own diverse beliefs and values.
If you would like to participate in activities at Pres House Church, there are many options available to you: attending Sunday worship, joining one of our small groups, and going on a church retreat are just a few faith activities that might interest you. Visit preshouse.org for more info.
