Financial Questions

For questions about online payments through My UW Housing or our collections policy, please contact the Division of University Housing Cashier’s Office at (608) 262-2230 or

Fees and Collections

A $20 fee is assessed to a resident’s account for any check returned to University Housing unpaid by the banks. In addition, a resident’s check-writing privileges will be suspended, and a hold will be placed on their academic records until the payment for the returned check has been resolved. Academic holds are also placed for past-due balances.

A late fee of $20 will be assessed to any balance remaining on a resident’s account as of the close of business on the fifth day of the month, or the next business day if the fifth falls on a holiday or weekend.

University Apartments and the Division of University Housing are self-funded operations. No tax dollars are received and all operating and repair costs are paid from rent income. Payments from foreign bank accounts or credit card companies cannot be accepted. There is a 2.85 percent convenience fee for online debit or credit card payments. There is no fee charged for payment by electronic check. UW-Madison has contracted with CASHNet SmartPay to process online credit card transactions for the Division of University Housing. The 2.85 percent convenience fee covers the cost of CASHNet’s services as well as the fees charged by the credit card companies. The Division of University Housing has decided to require those who make payments using a credit card to cover the cost of this service rather than adding the cost to Housing’s rent rates.
