Room Sign Up for Returning Students

Current students at UWRF may choose a room and roommate 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 & Request a Roommate

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.

2015-16 Academic Year: If you are newly signing a contract for the current 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 room type preferences that you have outlined in your contract.

2016-17 Academic Year: You may use the Residence Hall Portal to request your roommate. 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 2:  Choose a room for 2016-17 during Room Signup
(begins February, 2016)

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.

Single Rooms & Wait Lists

Visit the Wait List web page for details about getting on a wait list for a single room in the following halls. These halls are non first year halls. Before each Fall semester, these single rooms are obtained through the Room Sign Up process explained in the above brochure. Empty beds after Sign Up ends will be awarded through the Wait List.

  • South Fork Suites rooms are all single rooms in apartment-style living
  • Prucha Hall rooms are all "super single" rooms
  • Ames Suites has a small number of single rooms

Half-Filled Rooms - Keeping as Single Room: During Room Sign Up, if your room is half-empty, then other students have the option of reserving that empty bed. After Room Sign Up has ended, if you have an empty bed in your room, Residence Life will fill that bed with a roommate prior to the beginning of Fall semester. If a resident loses a roommate during the academic year, he/she has the option to retain the room at the single room rate, only when space permits.

Medical & Disability Single Rooms: A limited number of single rooms will be available to accommodate medical and disability circumstances. Requests for singles must be submitted by March 1st with required documentation to the Residence Life Office: B3 East Hathorn Hall , 410 S. 3rd St., River Falls, WI 54022, Telephone: (715) 425-4555 or E-mail: The Department of Residence Life, in consultation with Ability Services Office and other appropriate university staff, will render a decision regarding the request and notify the student via their UWRF e-mail account. Appropriate documentation will be required for considering the request. A limited number of accommodations are available if arrangements are secured prior to final housing assignments.


Transgender Accommodations

Roommates are assigned by biological sex. Students in transition with special needs should contact the Department of Residence Life by February 1 prior to the term they will be enrolling at UWRF. A limited number of accommodations with access to gender-neutral bathrooms/showers are available if arrangements are secured prior to final housing assignments.
