University Housing Supports New Fine Arts Community in Wallace Residence Center

Tuesday, February 25


MOSCOW, Idaho – University Housing will be opening a fine arts themed community in Wallace Residence Center-Stevenson Wing for fall 2014.

The fine arts themed community has previously been located in the Targhee building, which will be going offline as a student living option for fall 2014. Targhee has been identified by the University of Idaho as one of the building options that will house displaced College of Education staff, while their building undergoes major renovations.

University Housing is working with returning Targhee residents to provide them comparable housing and meal plan options for the 2014-2015 academic year.

“University Housing is committed to providing fine arts students the best experience possible. We will work with each impacted student individually,” said Dee Dee Kanikkeberg, director of University Housing.

University Housing is excited to have the fine arts themed community become a part of Wallace Residence Center as it is an opportunity to involve all housing students in a living environment focused on developing social and academic success. Staff is eager to collaborate with interested students over the coming months to help build a stronger and more programmatically themed fine arts community.

“I am delighted to welcome the fine arts community to Wallace, as it will create yet another way for students to connect their passions to their living spaces within University Housing’s largest residence hall,” said Morgan Hanson, resident director of Wallace Westside.
