Resources for Future Students|Residence Life & Dining Services

Welcome to Residence Life & Dining Services

Welcome to Residence Life & Dining Services at the University of Wyoming! Living and dining on campus are valuable experiences that allow students to meet new people, develop relationships, and integrate living and learning.

Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) and other Living/Learning Groups are designed to support your interests and academic pursuits. A FIG is a group of no more than 20 students with similar educational goals who take selected classes together and share a common living arrangement. Find out more about FIGs and Specialty Floors...

First Year Live-In Requirement

Incoming UW freshmen are required to live in the Residence Halls for their first academic year. For more information on the first-year live-in requirement, and exceptions to the policy, please visit our New Student Live-In Policy page.

Resources for Transfer, Graduate & Continuing Students

The Residence Halls are also an option for non-freshmen. In addition, Crane Hall houses students of sophomore standing and above and features all single rooms with queen-sized beds and provided micro-fridges. These features, along with the option to select a dining plan with fewer accesses to Washakie per week, allow for a more independent living environment appropriate for continuing students while still retaining all the conveniences and benefits that come with living in the residence halls.

Incoming transfer and graduate students also have the option of applying to live in Bison Run Village or the UW Apartments:

  • The Bison Run Village Apartments are an exciting on-campus living community for single, upper-class students. The fully-furnished townhome-style apartments are rented by the bedroom and feature shared kitchen, dining, and living room spaces with single, private bedrooms and private or semi-private bathrooms.
  • The UW Apartments provide housing to students of all types, including families, couples and single students. Three different apartment complexes (River Village, Landmark Village, and Spanish Walk) offer a variety of floor plans to choose from. With utilities, cable tv, and internet are included in the rent and easy access to campus transportation, the UW Apartments provide all the conveniences of on-campus living.

Dining plans are available to all students, including residents of the UW Apartments.
