Living In The Residence Halls

First Year Freshman Students

As an incoming student to UWRF, we are here to assist you with any questions you may have about the on campus living experience.  We have a number of opportunities for incoming students to have a unique experience living on campus:

No matter where you’ll be living, as an incoming student, you will have unparalleled access to programs and services that will enhance your academic experience.


UWRF 2-Year Live On Campus Policy: Students with fewer than four semesters of college after high school are required to live in UWRF residence halls.

To ensure the rights of all students are upheld, each member of the UWRF residence hall community is expected to know and abide by all University and Residence Life policies and standards.

Sign-up To Receive an On-Campus Room

Make sure that you sign a residence hall contract, pay a housing contract payment and sign up for a meal plan. If you are arriving for Fall semester, before mid-May you may find and mutually request a roommate in our online portal. See our room rates here.

Your New Home

Learn about your new home. No one residence hall is the same as another, but there are certain essentials you’ll want to remember (and some things you should leave at home).

Moving In

Move-in day is one of the most exciting days of your college career; it is the day you’ll make UWRF your official new home! It’s can also be one of the most nerve-wrecking times, as you prepare to pack your belongings and maybe even leave home for the first time.
