Why do the University Residence Halls use these converted spaces as resident rooms?
We want to offer housing to as many students as possible, particularly students who are new to the UW-Madison campus. This is why we expand our capacity to offer more contracts to students, enabling them to be part of the on-campus experience. These spaces are something that we carefully plan for every year.
Who can be assigned to these converted spaces?
Any student who signs a contract to live in the University Residence Halls can be assigned to a converted den or lounge space.
Where are these converted spaces located?
Anywhere from 2-6 Badgers may be assigned to a den or lounge in various University Residence Halls depending on the size of the space.
What are the amenities in converted spaces?
All the same amenities and furnishings available to students in traditional rooms are available to students assigned to converted spaces. Students living in hall dens will be provided keys to the lockable door. Only students assigned to the den will have access to the space.
What social and academic resources are available in these converted spaces?
Residents living in these spaces can and should utilize all the same resources available to any student living in University Housing. You will have a House Fellow within your community to help with questions. Whether learning your way around campus or attending one of the Wisconsin Welcome events together, there are numerous ways to get involved.
Additionally, academic tutoring services are located in a number of locations across campus. Our staff is ready to direct you to a variety of resources to enhance your academic success.
