Planning For Move In

University Housing staff is eager to help you feel at home in the University Residence Halls this fall. For complete information on what to bring, renter's insurance, assigned move-in days, parking, safety, bills, and much more, please refer to our moving-In page.

Planning for Next Year

We encourage you and your student to investigate all your options for living next year, including returning to the University Residence Halls. During this process, students can reserve their same room before others are allowed to select it, explore new roommate options with Room Sync, a Facebook matching application, or submit a group assignment request form if they are interested in living with a group of friends. Above all else, please take your time in making a decision, and be sure to take a look at why thousands of University Housing residents decide to return each year.

Email Updates for Parents

Students have the opportunity to enter an email address for a parent/guardian to receive general updates and information from the University Residence Halls. Students log in to My UW Housing and then click on the "Verify" tab to add or edit email contacts. For any email addresses entered, be sure the email user adds assignme@housing.wisc.edu to their list of contacts so messages can be received.
