Payments and deposits for University Housing bills, contracts, and to Wiscard (the official Madison photo ID used for dining, food purchases, laundry and more) are on a separate system from UW-Madison tuition payments made to the Bursar's Office and can be made via a variety of methods, depending on personal preference.

Pay via Financial Aid

Students who will be receiving financial aid can indicate this in My UW Housing. Financial aid funds are processed by the Bursar’s Office to pay tuition, and any remaining financial aid funds are then paid directly to the student. Students or their authorized payers are still responsible for paying quarterly Housing bills by the due date using one of the payment methods listed above.
