If you are a current UW-Madison student and interested in a contract offer for the 2020-21 Academic Year, please send your name and campus ID to assignMe@housing.wisc.edu. Your request will be reviewed and you will receive further communication regarding your request.
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 in the lower level of Slichter Residence Hall.
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.
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.
