To to understand your living options, you will want to read the information on this website carefully. Then you should complete the Residence Life & Dining Service Contract online. If you have not received a Viewbook or need a paper contract, please contact us.
A security deposit of $100 must be paid in order to complete your Residence Life & Dining Services Contract. This fee is part of the enrollment depost that new students to UW pay to confirm enrollment. Students returning to UW must pay this deposit separately.
Complete your contract and deposit as soon as possible -- especially if you want a single room or a special/academic interest floor, because they fill up quickly and are assigned on a date priority basis.
Room assignments will be made in July and continue through the opening of the halls in August. Your room assignment, with the name and telephone number of your roommate, will be mailed to your permanent address.
Prior to your August arrival, you will receive information about checking into the residence halls and what to bring for your room.
If you are paying rates for a double room, but remaining as the single occupant when vacancies occur, you will be given a few options for consolidation. If you wish to continue paying the double occupancy rate, you may:
- choose another resident to move in with you.
- move in with another resident of your choice who doesn't have a roommate (ask your Area Coordinator for a list of residents also needing roommates)
- allow the Residence Life and Dining Services staff to assign you a roommate
- If a student fails to accept an assigned roommate disciplinary actions and additional charges may be assessed.
You may reserve your current space starting on February 24th until
March 7th. From March 10th to April 25th you may reserve any remaining
available space in the halls that you are qualified to live in.
White and Crane Hall students will be unable to reserve their current spaces, White Hall will be reconfigured, and Crane Hall Single Queen rooms will be moved to Hill Hall for the 2014-2015 school year. These students will be able to reserve roughly equivalent space during the general room selection period that opens on March 10th.
Students with disabilities who need special equipment supplied to their rooms or require handicap-accessible rooms should contact Residence Life & Dining Services, as well as Student Educational Opportunity (766-6189) as soon as possible. You should fill out the contract according to your needs. Attach further information to your contract if necessary. Wheelchair-accessible rooms are currently available in Hill, Orr, and McIntyre Halls.
