Blackhawk Partners with Beloit College to Offer New Housing Option

April 30, 2024


Students enrolled at Blackhawk Technical College now have a residential living option through a new partnership with Beloit College.

Beginning in August, students will have the opportunity to reside in Peet Hall on Beloit College's campus, where they can enjoy access to a range of amenities, including fitness facilities and flexible meal plan options. Additionally, Blackhawk will provide complimentary shuttle service between campuses.

“Providing a living space for our students has been a goal of ours for some time. Residential life is a key part of the overall college experience, and we are grateful for Beloit College’s partnership in helping us realize this vision,” said Dr. Tracy Pierner, President of Blackhawk.

This new housing option aligns with the college's goal to provide students with a more comprehensive and traditional college experience, and it coincides with the recent launch of Blackhawk Athletics. Both initiatives aim to enrich student life and foster a stronger sense of community for Blackhawk students.

Residence hall living is offered at six of the 16 colleges within the Wisconsin Technical College System. Some offer traditional residence halls, while others have partnerships with neighboring four-year universities or offer resources to find off-campus housing.

Beloit College President Eric Boynton said the housing agreement reflects the college’s wish to continue building partnerships with organizations and industries in the region, particularly with Blackhawk.

“We are especially excited about our partnerships with Blackhawk because they reflect our shared commitment to providing students with exceptional opportunities for academic and personal development,” he said.

The college and Blackhawk have already joined forces to offer emergency medical technician (EMT) and certified nursing assistant (CNA) certifications for Beloit students, Boynton said. 

“These partnerships help prepare possible pathways for bachelor's degree completion for Blackhawk students in health science careers who are seeking to transfer into a four-year degree institution,” he said.
