Updates to Housing Operations

UW-Madison has announced its Smart Restart plans for a modified return to in-person instruction this fall, and we’re excited to welcome Badgers to #LiveWithBucky on campus. University Housing is developing detailed plans to welcome students to our residence halls with added precautions to set you up for success. Visit our Fall Reopening Guide for the latest details.
