The tallest building on the UW–Madison campus isn’t Van Hise Hall, which stands 196 feet from the ground (not sea level). The Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences building holds that title, measuring at 205 feet (not including its satellite dishes), according to the Division of Facilities Planning & Management. The shortest building? The Poultry Research Lab — a paltry 20 feet high.
