Residence Life & Dining

Frequently Asked Questions

Residence Life & Dining

To help them maximize their potential, the UW Trustees have established a policy requiring new students to live in UW residence halls during their first academic year on campus and to contract for a minimum of a 12-accesses-per-week dining plan. 
The University of Wyoming offers many learning communities that provide students an opportunity to reside in close proximity with others who share similar interests. A Freshman Interest Group (FIG) is one such option. Students live on the same floor of a designated residence hall and attend various events with their FIG Residence Assistant (RA). Other floors or half-floors have special designations. For example, there are floors for engineering majors, honors students, first-generation students, Native Americans, Army ROTC, Airforce ROTC, all gender, female-only, or male-only. In addition, the Honors House is available to select students who turn in their housing contracts by a designated deadline.
Move-In is usually four to five days before the start of the semester. For current move-in dates, check the Residence Life and Dining website.
Residence Life and Dining, ACES Advisors, and the LeaRN Programs sponsor early move-in programing. Early Move-In program allows students who are majoring in exploratory studies (formerly undeclared) or in the Fall Bridge Program to move into the Residence Halls one day early. In addition to early move in, activities are planned to acquaint students with Laramie, the UW campus, and the university systems. These students also have an opportunity to view a mock class in order to get a real taste of college life one day early.
The current Washakie Dining Center hours and prices can be accessed at the Dining website.
