Living in the Halls

Living in the Residence Halls

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 Hall Staff: Staff manage the day-to-day operations in each 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 Ames Suites, which share similar amenities in a pod-style living arrangement.
