All University Residence Halls will remain open throughout spring recess without charge. For complete information about spring break, including parking information, dining hours, staff availability, and more see our Moving In & Out 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to their list of contacts so messages can be received.
University Residence Halls Construction and Renovation
We are improving and expanding housing on the UW-Madison Campus in response to demand from first-year students and their families. Current major projects of note include:
- Leopold Residence Hall (formerly New 32 Hall) located south of Kronshage Hall and east of Cole Hall & Holt Commons in the lakeshore neighborhood opened August 2013 and is the new home for the GreenHouse Learning Community
- Carson Gulley Commons located south of Adams & Tripp Halls and east of Slichter Hall in the lakeshore neighborhood has been renovated and re-opened in August 2013 with new marketplace dining venues, elevators, and common spaces
