UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

Student Experience

The residence halls at UWRF are vibrant communities where students participate in a wide-variety of floor and hall programs, learn with and from others, and interact with individuals different from themselves.  Residence Life offers a number of living options and a well-trained staff to assist you and act as a resource for your on campus living needs.  

The vast majority of UWRF residence hall students indicate they are very satisfied with their on-campus living experience and, in particular, have a high level of satisfaction with their Resident Assistant, and the opportunity to interact personally with others in their residence hall.

Residence Halls: The UWRF campus is one of the most residential in the state with over 40% of students living on campus. 

Room Design: There are three types of rooms in the residence halls: 

  1. Traditional Double Room: A room shared by two residents. Most hall rooms are double rooms.
  2. Single Room: A room for one resident, available in South Fork Suites or Ames Suites. In our upper class hall (South Fork Suites), four single rooms share a living room, bathroom and kitchen in an apartment style living arrangement. A small number of single rooms are available in our Sophomore-only hall, Ames Suites, which share similar amenities in a pod-style living arrangement.
  3. Super Single Room: A traditional double room, but for one resident rather than two residents. Super singles are in Prucha Hall only.

Amenities & Services: As you make the transition to college, your residence hall is designed to provide you with everything you need to be successful in your "home away from home."

Community Living: Living as part of a community is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial parts of residential campus living. View the Community Living options.

Safety & Security: Safety in the residence halls is everyone’s responsibility. There are a number of things the university does to promote safe environments. Students are also expected to assume responsibility for their safety.

Conduct Policies and Procedures: In order to ensure the rights of all students are upheld each member of the UW-River Falls community is responsible for knowing and abiding by the policies of the residence hall system as well as the policies of each hall entered.

Emergency Preparedness: It is the responsibility of each student to know what to do in the event of an emergency.
