TECHNOLOGY/TELEVISION

University Housing has computer labs available to students in each residence hall complex. The labs have the same general software available that other non-specialized computer labs on campus offer.

Currently, the UW-Whitewater ResNET (Residential Network) consists of more than 6,000 data jacks and wireless access points throughout the Residence Halls. Each room has at least one data jack. All halls have 100% wireless coverage. Please make sure you have a dual-band wireless device for optimal performance. If you choose not to use wireless, you will need an ethernet cable, which may be purchased at most major electronic stores. We recommend a length of 25 feet. Please contact ResNET for ethernet jack activation requests.

For more information on campus wireless, please reference: http://www.uww.edu/icit/services/network-connectivity

ResNET also provides useful computing information and computer technical support. For liability reasons we may not service hardware.

The Residence Halls offer an all-digital cable line-up using the ClearQAM standard. You do not need a cable box if you have a newer TV that has a ClearQAM (specs may indicate QAM, QAM-256 or ClearQAM) tuner. If you have a newer TV and are unsure that it is digital, take a look at the remote and see if there is a button for dot(.), dash(-) or sub-channel.

Our cable system currently has more than 170 channels featuring 80+ HD Channels, 11 premium channel HBO/Cinemax lineup and 24 SiriusXM music channels.

To access policies or other information, please visit our website at: http://www.uww.edu/housing/services/technology or contact our office by phone: (262)-472-3233 or email: resnet@uww.edu

PARKING

Parking Permits are handled through Visitor & Parking Services, (262)- 472-1011. Students with housing contracts are mailed parking permit registration materials in August of each year. Lot assignments are made on a "first-come, first-served basis" as registrations are returned, with assignments made to the available parking lot nearest the resident's hall first. Parking for Cambridge Hall is purchased by the student through DLK Enterprises. (262)473-5321

The resident lot assignment process ensures that a parking space is available to the resident, and that parking areas in proximity to academic functions are available to commuting students, faculty and staff. After 7:00pm, vehicles with resident parking permits may park in metered and unrestricted spaces in the academic parking areas. Meter fees are not required for vehicles with permits after 7:00pm.

Moped parking is permitted only at the moped stalls located in the parking lots around campus. Students may NOT lock their moped at the bike racks. The parking permit fee for a moped is $50 for the 2020-2021 academic year. Operating a moped on a sidewalk is PROHIBITED, and violation of this policy will be strictly enforced by Campus Police.

Visit Parking Services on the web at: http://www.uww.edu/adminaffairs/parking

BIKE LOCKERS

Bike lockers are completely enclosed storage units with a lockable door. They protect your bike from weather, theft, and vandalism.

Rental charges are as follows: $50 per academic year, $25 per semester, and $20 for the summer. To reserve a bike locker, complete a bike locker application found on the Student Portal.

A confirmation e-mail will be sent to your UWW e-mail account upon completion. Payment is not due at this time; we will add the charge to your student bill (this is the only accepted form of payment). Bike lockers are assigned on a "first-come, first-served" basis. Information on how to receive your bike locker key will be sent in your confirmation email.

Problems accessing the online application? Call (262) 472-4200.

MAIL

Mail is delivered daily to each residence hall by the US Postal Service. Your mail will be put into a locked mailbox which you will share with your roommate(s). Your mailbox number will match your room number, and can be opened using your room key. In Cambridge Hall, on-campus mail will be hand delivered by the RA’s to residents.”

PACKAGES

Packages sent to you through the US Postal Service will be delivered to your hall and you can pick them up at your residence hall front desk. Our strong recommendation is that you have things sent through the US Postal Service whenever possible. Packages sent to you through any other delivery services (such as, United Parcel Service (UPS), Federal Express (FedEx), etc.), will be delivered to University Housing, 1st floor Goodhue Hall. When packages are received at Goodhue Hall, students will be notified via their UWW e-mail accounts. These packages will need to be picked up with an ID during regular business hours at the Goodhue front desk. Packages not picked up within two weeks of delivery at Goodhue Hall will be returned to the sender.  It is the responsibility of the resident to check their mailbox.

*When sending all mail and packages, please make sure to address to address to the student's given name (no nicknames).

Please refer to the mailing addresses above for instructions on how your mail should be addressed for your specific hall.

RENTER'S INSURANCE

The University is not liable for personal property which may be lost, stolen, or damaged in any way (including damages from sprinkler systems), nor does it carry insurance to cover such losses. Students should check with their families about insurance coverage.

All students are responsible for helping to maintain the security of the residence hall. This may be done by locking doors, following established procedures, and immediately reporting all suspicious behavior to your Resident Assistant or Complex Director.

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT

UW-Whitewater has many opportunities for employment on campus for work study and non-work study students.

Please visit http://www.uww.edu/career/handshake.php for employment opportunities on and off campus.

University Housing utilizes Handshake to announce position openings throughout the year as do many other departments on campus. To gain a better understanding of positions available within University Housing, please visit the staff tab on the www.uww.edu/housing website.
