When you return from your study abroad experience, you are required to live on campus unless you meet one of the Exemptions to the 2-Year Live On-Campus Requirement for that term.
Keep in mind that you may have limited Internet access while abroad, so we recommend completing as many items on the checklist as possible before you leave.

When you study abroad, you have the option of requesting that your housing deposit be held by Res Life so that, when you return to on-campus living for the following term, you may easily sign-up for housing, and you may avoid paying the Non-Refundable Service Fee (NRSF) a second time.
If you do not ask that your housing deposit be held, you will automatically receive a refund of your housing deposit once the term before your study abroad semester is complete. You will then be required to pay the $175.00 housing deposit and NRSF if you return to on-campus living after studying abroad.
If you wish to live in Jesse H. Ames Suites (Ames Suites) or George R. Field South Fork Suites (SFS) when you return to UWRF, you must meet the eligibility requirements listed on the Ames Suites and for SFS pages.
Ames Suites and SFS Wait Lists: Ask to be added to the Wait List for either of these halls by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org from your UWRF student email account.
