For more than fifty years, Petawa Residence & Cultural Center has served as a home away from home for hundreds of undergraduate and graduate women.
Petawa is a small student residence located conveniently downtown near Milwaukee’s major universities of Marquette University, the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee School of Engineering, and Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC).
The college and graduate women who live at Petawa are typically serious students who enjoy meeting others, contributing to the life of the residence and appreciate the Christian environment of service, leadership and idealism.
