The most important benefit is that you are guaranteeing your participation in a learning community for your first year on campus. The UW-Madison campus has had residential learning community options for over 15 years. You will become a part of this long standing tradition.
By choosing your 2017-18 assignment during the learning community room selection process, you are guaranteeing where you will be placed for the start of the Fall 2017 semester!
Yes, only the following communities are available during the Learning Community Room Selection process:
We will email you with a link to My UW Housing in mid-June that will have your roommate’s name, address, phone number, and email address.
You and your friend will both want to follow these simple steps:
If you select a room during the Learning Community Room Selection process, this will be your room assignment for 2017-18 and you will not go through our mass assignment process. You are finished and have guaranteed your assignment!
If you decide you would rather not live in a learning community, you will instead go through our mass assignment process. This computerized system does not guarantee assignment to your first choice hall; all students who meet their contract deadlines have an equal chance of receiving their first choice preference or something lower on their list.
Communities can fill quickly; Learning Community spaces are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please check back, as spaces may become available throughout the selection week. Consider selecting a room in another community if your top choice has filled.
If you would like to live in a different learning community, please email the Assignment Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can provide access for you to choose a new learning community room. Include your Name and Campus ID number in the email.
If you’d like to select a different room number within your top learning community, you are free to do so yourself. Simply click “change my assignment” to re-select a different space from May 8 - May 10, 2017.
If you no longer want any learning community as your top choice, please email the Assignment Office (email@example.com) so we can remove this room from your assignment. Be certain to include your Name and Campus ID number in the email. There is still a chance you will be assigned to a residential learning community during our mass assignment process.
