RANGER RESTART: Updates, resources, and FAQs

Students who currently live on campus are usually sent information in February regarding the room selection process for the following academic year. Students can guarantee the room of their choice by completing the Housing and Dining Contract online in MyHousing. In March,  returning students will be able to select their own room from available spaces through MyHousing. Students may sign up for their same room or a different room.* 

To be eligible for "Priority Room Selection", you must complete a Housing and Dining Contract through MyHousing. Campus housing returning students are not required to pay the contract fee.

FALL 2020 HOUSING AND RESIDENCE LIFE UPDATES

For those that are returning to UW-Parkside for the Fall term 2020, this is a reminder to complete your 2020-2021 Housing and Residence Life and Dining Contract.  Please review the contract closely as there have been a number of updates (STEP 1).

The residence hall assignment process has been postponed until the week of July 12, 2020 for returning residence hall students.  The virtual in hall sign up process will launch at that time and you will be able to select your room. 

Please complete you contract with preferences and roommate requests by July 1, 2020 to be eligible to participate in the virtual in hall sign up process.
