Considering living on campus for the Spring Semester?
University Residence Halls will have space available this spring for students who may have chosen to stay home this fall. UW-Madison plans to continue with a hybrid course model for spring 2021. Whether you’re planning to take some in-person classes or just want to get an on-campus experience next semester, University Housing welcomes you to join us and #LiveWithBucky. If you’re interested, please complete the form below by November 2 for priority consideration and we’ll send you more details when our process is ready:
Spring Housing Interest Form
How to live in the University Residence Halls
Contract offers begin in mid-November and are sent to your @wisc.edu email address. After receiving a contract offer, log in to My UW Housing to select your room.
From mid-November through February, you can select a new room/hall by logging into My UW Housing. After selecting a new room/hall, you have 7 days to sign your housing contract and submit your advance payment or the room will become available for other students to choose.
If you want to change rooms after February, you need to visit the Assignment Office on the lower level of Slichter Residence Hall.
Hall Assignments & Contracts
If you originally had a hall assignment for this fall but canceled, we’ll do our best to assign you to that same residence hall for the spring. With the spring course registration timeline being later this year, if you sign up for spring housing and later find it makes sense to study from home with all virtual classes, we’ll allow you to cancel your contract prior to the start of the semester.
Two students interested in becoming roommates should preference one another under the Roommate tab in My UW Housing. If you’re interested in living with a new first-year or transfer student, you should complete the form provided when submitting your roommate request in My UW Housing.
Contracts for continuing UW students will require a $300 advance payment. Current UW-Madison students who have previously lived with University Housing are not subject to the $50 non-refundable contract fee. Review the cancellation policy in our contract that specifies what must be met to qualify for cancellation and details of the forfeiture schedule, if applicable. Your second-semester bill will be reduced by the advance payment you have made.
Still Deciding? We are built for your success!
We understand you have many options to consider. We strongly recommend researching the various living options in Madison before making a final decision, including why thousands of University Housing residents decide to return each year. The residence halls offer resources, conveniences, support staff, and opportunities to make new friends and connections for a successful spring semester. Through our COVID-19 policies and protocols, including a robust testing plan and ongoing adjustments, we provide a campus home with many effective measures in place to protect our residents.
