Housing Policy


Room Assignment Policy

Residence Life will not discriminate in room or hall assignment on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or ancestry. At the time of initial assignment, a reasonable attempt will be made to assign you to a hall based on the preferences listed on the Housing Contract. Residence Life reserves the right to change residence hall and / or room assignments, to assign roommates, or to consolidate vacancies by requiring students to move or to receive a new roommate when deemed necessary. Residence Life reserves the right to reassign one or both persons when irreconcilable differences occur between roommates or others living in close proximity.

Board of Regents Residency Requirement

The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System requires that all students with fewer than 60 credits live in university operated residence halls during the academic year. Exceptions are made for those students who are veterans, married, who have graduated from high school more than two years ago, or who have permission to commute from their parent's home, if within the approved commuter radius of 40 miles. A notarized request for commuter status must be filed with Residence Life prior to course registration for those students selecting this option. Should you have further questions about this policy, please direct them to Residence Life.
