You’ve done your homework and know living on campus is a great value. National research shows students who live on campus tend to have higher GPAs and persist to graduation at higher rates than their peers. Students who plan to live on campus must complete a Housing and Dining contract to get a room assignment.
The Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System requires that all freshman and sophomore students live in University operated housing during the academic year. View exemptions to this policy below.
- Living with dependent children
- Living with parents or guardian within the commutable range
