Housing and Residence Life partners with local companies to provide housing arrangements for interns each summer. Accommodations during the academic year may be offered as space is available. With easy access to both Kenosha and Racine, even Milwaukee and Chicago, our University Apartments are an affordable and convenient option for those seeking housing accommodations while completing an internship or cooperative experience in the area.
Interns reside in our University Apartments. The University Apartments are 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom units shared by up to 6 people. Each apartment has a living room and kitchen. Bedrooms are furnished with twin extra-long beds, desks, and dressers. The kitchen offers a full-size refrigerator and stove with a table and four chairs. Living rooms are furnished with a couch, chair, and end table. Linens, dishware, and cooking items are not provided. All utilities are included, and each space is equipped with wall-unit air conditioning, cable, and wireless internet.
Interns are assigned to one bed within a like-gendered apartment. The number of private bedrooms are limited. Private room requests will be honored as space allows. While we aim to assign interns from the same company together, interns may live with those working for other companies. Housing & Residence Life reserves the right to assign roommates and change assignments as needed. Assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
Within the University Apartments community, residents have access to a laundry room with vending area and fitness equipment. A community space with a television and a microwave is available for residents to use. A computer lab is also accessible through the community room. Outside, the University Apartments community has a sand volleyball court and plenty of green space for recreation. Residents can take a short walk to the Student Center where they can find an outdoor patio and basketball court, campus dining options, bookstore, Educators Credit Union, and an ATM. Parking is provided adjacent to University Housing.
