The Cinema

A Community Place

The Warch Campus Center opens its doors to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the greater Fox Cities by hosting events and providing gathering spaces.

A Center for Campus and Community

When planning your next meeting or conference, email us about finding the right venue.  We can suggest stunning backdrops for your wedding or family gathering, too.

Students, faculty, and staff can use an on-campus reservation system to request a room for the desired date and time for movies, meetings, and more. 


Oh, yes, there's parking, but it's a few steps away from the Warch Campus Center.  When designing our environmentally friendly, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold-certified building, we preserved  green space around the building whenever possible.  You'll find parking lots about a block away, as our map depicts.
