Residence Halls

COVID-19: IMPORTANT MOVE OUT INFORMATION

Along with university efforts to decrease density in student housing, all undergraduate residential students should make plans to move out of the Residence Halls by Sunday, April 5. If you are unable to move out by April 5th or have been exposed to COVID-19, please fill out an exception form and Residence Life & Dining Services will work with you to remove your belongings at a later date. For more information visit uwyo.edu/move-out. 


The Residence Halls offer a diverse and exciting experience you will appreciate for the rest of your life. Research conducted on a national level indicates that students who choose to live in the residence halls are more likely to stay in school, graduate and are generally more satisfied with their college experience. 

As a student, you have various choices to choose from when it comes to residence hall living at UW. There are six residence halls on campus, and you can choose from different living styles. Each type of housing has its own unique set of features and prices.

Share a room with someone you know or meet someone new by going "potluck," either way, we know you will make some of your best friends in the halls! Residential Life is sensitive to the needs of our residents, and we make every effort to make your experiences on-campus the best that they can be.

FAQ'S

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED ON CAMPUS?

A First-Year Experience website has been created to connect students to campus resources and answer a number of additional frequently asked questions about the University of Wyoming.


HOW DO I RECEIVE MY MAIL WHILE LIVING IN THE RESIDENCE HALLS?

Packages and mail will be delivered to the Residence Halls weekdays and Saturdays, usually in the late afternoon. To ensure that you receive your packages they must be addressed as follows:

FIRST NAME - LAST NAME

MAILBOX NUMBER, HALL NAME

LARAMIE, WY 82070

Please note that the words "Post Office" or "P.O.", or "Box" are NOT part of your address. If written, this may delay your mail or it could be sent back to the sender.

Also, note that the mailbox number is NOT your room number, but a designated mailbox number. You will receive this mailbox number in the letter containing your room information. Contact RL&DS at 307-766-3175 if you do not have this number.


ARE THERE COMPUTER LABS AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS LIVING IN THE HALLS?

The residential computer lab is conveniently located in the lower level of the Washakie Center and is a place to do homework, work on group projects, and check e-mail. The lab’s computers are connected to the UW student network and offer the latest technology. In addition to the Washakie Lab, the IT Center just across the street has a computer lab with extended hours.


WHERE ARE LAUNDRY FACILITIES LOCATED IN THE HALLS?

The laundry facilities are located in the basement of each hall. Laundry is operated by card activation, not coins. Money can be added to your campus dollars account by depositing money at the WyoOne ID Office or through the machines located in the lobby of each residence hall. The laundry facilities are maintained by Vending Services. Should you have questions please contact them at 307-766-4104.


ARE EXTENSION CORDS, POWER STRIPS AND OTHER ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES ALLOWED?

Each side of a residence hall room can support a maximum wattage of 1500 watts at a given time. Given this, students must be mindful of items being used simultaneously. Avoid overloading electrical outlets. Extension cords are not allowed. The surge protector we recommend should be UL approved and have a number of safety features including a design to prevent cord fires, ground faults, surges, and overloads. Please purchase surge protectors that are designated to detect cord damage, disconnect powering 25/1000 of a second, and that prevent cord fires and shock hazards. We require all students living in the residence halls to use surge protectors with these safety features designed into the product.


I LIKE TO HUNT. WHERE CAN I PUT MY HUNTING EXQUIPMENT?

Hunting equipment such as firearms, bow, and arrows, etc. must be stored with the University Police and will be available to you 24 hours a day.


WHEN SOMETHING IN MY ROOM DOESN'T WORK, WHAT DO I DO?

You may submit work orders to the RLDS maintenance office on our website work request form.


WHAT IF MY ROOMMATE AND I DON'T GET ALONG?

If roommates are having trouble getting along, the department offers peer mediation services to help roommates communicate their issues to each other and develop a plan for working together in the future. Students can speak with their RA for more information about this program. Each case of roommate conflict is dealt with on an individual basis. There are no room changes in the first two weeks of school. However, they may be permitted if approved by your Residence Coordinator.


WHAT CAN I BRING?

The best advice is for students to work with their roommates to coordinate who brings what for any large items, i.e. stereo, TV, or refrigerator. Due to safety requirements, students should not bring appliances with open heating elements, i.e. grills, hot plates, toaster ovens, or skillets; halogen lamps; or large amp appliances. If students are in doubt of whether a particular item is allowed, they should contact the Residence Life & Dining Services office with their specific question.


WHAT TYPE OF SAFETY IS PROVIDED?

24-hour front desk coverage is available in White Hall, and all halls maintain night-time RA on Call coverage for any concerns that arise after business hours.


DO THE HALLS REMAIN OPEN DURING THE HOLIDAYS?

During the Semester Break between fall and spring semesters, the halls are closed. Students wishing to remain on campus may be temporarily moved to a designated hall as space is available. A daily rate will be charged for this break. No dining services will be provided.


CAN I HAVE A PET?

Only fish are allowed in tanks that are no greater than 20 gallons in size. Other animals living in or out of tanks or aquariums are not allowed.
