An undergraduate student is sent a housing packet in the mail within a few weeks after the student has been admitted to UW-Parkside. All freshman and sophomore students (students who have not earned 54 or more credits as of the first day of classes) who are not veterans, married, or living with parents or guardian within the commutable range shall be required to live in a University operated Residence Hall when such accommodations are available. For more information, see Mandatory Requirements.
A student needs a UW-Parkside e-mail address in order to complete a Residence Hall and Dining Contract.
Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the earlier a student completes a housing contract and pays the $50 Application Fee, the better chance that housing preferences can be accommodated.
Assignments are made in mid-summer and our sent out in the middle of July, and students receive their room assignments and roommate information via e-mail to the University of Wisconsin Parkside Account. Contracts received after initial assignments have been posted are assigned as time and spaces permit.
Students who currently live in the residence halls will be sent information in February regarding the room reapplication process for the following academic year. Students can guarantee the room of their choice by completing an online housing and dining contract.
Students will be able to select an available room through MyHousing. Students may sign up for their same room, a different room on the same floor/same apartment, a different room in their present hall, or a different room in another residence hall. Those students wishing to switch from a double room to a single room can add their name to a lottery drawing based on class rank.
Returning students to the residence halls are not required to pay the Application Fee. Beginning in Fall 2014, no resident will not be required to pay a housing deposit.
Once you submit your application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to pay your $50.00 Application Fee.
You can do this one of two ways:
Pay on line using your SOLAR account
(note: SOLAR requires your UW-P email user name and password)
Send a check or money order to Cashiers Office, 900 Wood Road, Kenosha, WI 53141-2000.
Please indicate Housing Application Fee and your student ID number on the check.
