Room Sign Up for Returning Students

Current students at UWRF may choose a room and roommate for by following the below steps. 

New incoming freshmen and transfer students do not have the option of choosing their own room using this Room Sign-up process.


Step 1:  Sign a Residence Hall Contract

Log-into the Portal linked below to sign the Residence Hall Contract for living on campus. After logging-into eSIS, you will see the button shown below for logging-into the Portal. If no button is available, then you will first need to pay your Residence Hall Contract Fees before the button will be available.

Step 2: Roommates

2015-16 Academic Year: If you are newly signing a contract for the 2015-16 academic year and are seeking to request a specific roommate, both you and that desired roommate must both email to request each other as roommates. Send your email using your UWRF email account. If no roommate is specified in an email request by you, then we will match you with a roommate of similar age and class standing, and based on the preferences you have outlined in your contract.

2016-17 Academic Year: You may use the Residence Hall Portal to request your roommate once the 2016-17 contract is live. There will be a May, 2016 roommate request deadline - after that deadline, you may no longer use the Residence Hall Portal to request a roommate. For any roommate requests received after the deadline, there is a decreased chance that those will be fulfilled. Due to space limitations, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be granted.

Step 3:  Choosing a Room for the 2016-17 Academic Year

Once it's available, read through the below brochure for dates and instructions to reserve a room for the 2016-17 academic year. Identify when the room sign-up phase begins for your preferred hall(s), then use the link in Step 1 above to log-into the Portal and reserve a room during that phase. Phases will begin at the start of the Spring 2016 semester.

For students currently living off-campus, your room sign-up phase to reserve a Fall 2016 room will begin on a specific date during the Spring 2016 semester. Information will be provided here prior to Spring semester.
