Residents affectionately call the Donner-Webster community “Donster,” as Donner Residence Hall and Webster Residence Hall are a combined community. In Donster the hall council and staff work to serve all our residents; in particular, we focus on second year students in Donner, and we focus on first year students in Webster. Within Webster you will have access to a kitchen, laundry facility, study spaces in the basement, floor lounges, a big screen TV, table tennis, pool, a computer lab and much more! The main desk provides many items including games, kitchen equipment, and a change machine.
Because we are a small community, getting to know your neighbors and forming close relationships is easy. Not only that, but getting involved in campus, hall events, and programs is simple! Webster Hall houses only first year students and is part of the LIFE (Learning in a First-Year Environment) program. Students will have the opportunity to participate in programs geared toward building connections with students, faculty, and campus resources. Conveniently located by Clow Hall, Sage Hall, and Kolf, residents enjoy the short walk to classes, sporting events, and getting coffee at Mi Taza right next door.
Donner beds are loftable with the use of College Products lofts. For pricing and more information, please see their website.

Each floor in Webster Hall has a Community Advisor (CA). The role of the CA is to help you in your on-campus living experience. They have been trained extensively in the areas of peer helping, university resources, planning programs and activities for you that will be fun, educational, and also engage you in the hall, campus and Oshkosh community.
Donner and Webster share a Desk Manager who runs the front desk of each hall.
There is also a student Health Advocate in the building that can provide general medical information and supplies such as band aids, aspirin, and health brochures. These student staff members are there to help you have a great time, as well as make sure that the hall community is a safe, respectful, and responsible environment for you to live in. Donner and Webster Residence Halls are supported by a team of student staff and professional staff that work together to provide services to the residents. There is also a Residence Hall Director (RHD) who is a professional that has earned a Master’s degree in Student Affairs or a related field. The RHD is here to supervise the staff, encourage leadership development, run the building, and make sure that you have a positive growing experience. There is also an Assistant Residence Hall Director (ARHD) who is a graduate student that assists the hall director in the day to day operations of the building along with supervising the staff.
