Sage Hall

Sage Hall, UW Oshkosh's first new academic building since 1971, opened for classes in fall 2011. The word “sage” has multiple meanings that lend themselves to an academic building that is energy efficient, including:

  • a mentor in spiritual and philosophical topics who is renowned for profound wisdom
  • having wisdom that comes with age and experience
  • aromatic fresh or dried gray-green leaves used widely as seasoning
  • any of various plants of the genus Salvia; a cosmopolitan herb


The word “sage” also is associated with Socrates and the Socratic Method of inquiry, and it aligns well with the “Nature of Wisdom” and “Wisdom of Nature” phrases imprinted in the decorative cast stone panels located on the building’s exterior.

Rooms are available for meetings or events.

Contact Julia Hodgen at or (920) 424-1444 if you would like to reserve a room.
