New first-year UW-Madison students who are admitted to the University for the fall or spring semester are offered a contract for the University Residence Halls; a separate application for housing is not needed, but you must sign the contract by your due date. University Housing communicates with you through the email address you provided to the University on your application, with information to complete the online contract process in the My UW Housing portal if space is available.
Housing assignments at UW-Madison are not first come first serve, so you don’t need to sign your contract early. As long as you sign and submit the advance payment by your due date, you will be guaranteed a space.
Due by May 15 (for most admitted students)
