A Tripp resident studying in her room


This year, we have seen an exceptionally high level of interest in coming to UW-Madison and living on campus, so we do not anticipate having space in the residence halls for transfer students. Transfer students may consider Eagle Heights, a University Housing apartment community on the northwest end of campus. This community has a limited number of two-bedroom unfurnished apartments available. If you are interested, you can apply through the University Apartments leasing page.

Housing Contract for Transfers

Transfer students are offered a contract for the University Residence Halls using the information provided to UW-Madison’s Office of Admissions & Recruitment as long as space remains available. If you are interested in living in University Housing please email our office for more information at assignMe@housing.wisc.edu after you are admitted to UW-Madison.

Advance Payment

Contracts for freshmen and transfers require a $75 non-refundable application fee in addition to a $225 advance payment that is paid when the contract is signed. Review the cancellation policy in our contract that specifies what must be met to qualify for a cancellation and details of the forfeiture schedule, if applicable. Your final Housing bill will be reduced by the advance payment you have made.
