Residence Halls

UW-Platteville strives to provide a safe, clean, comfortable, and inclusive environment for our students to call home in the residence halls. All residence halls are committed to building communities of respect and engagement. We provide a wide range of amenities and rates, which allows you to choose a residence that fits your budget, lifestyle, interests, and needs. During the contracting process, you will have the ability to rank your top preferences of residence hall. Please fill out all four preferences on your residence hall contract as there are no guarantees of your first choice availability based on occupancy projections.

UW System Board of Regents Residence Requirements states that freshman and sophomore students who are not veterans, married, or living with parents or guardians, shall be required to live in a university-operated residence hall when such accommodations are available.  This policy that first-year and second-year students are required to live in a community environment is enforced by the Department of Residence Life at UW-Platteville. 

Students who are involved in a university sponsored program (co-op, education abroad, internship, student teaching) or are called for military service, must request a release from the semester through the Department of Residence Life.

There are seven traditional style residence halls with double occupancy rooms. There are also four-person suite/apartment style residence halls with single and double-room occupancy, and bathrooms within each suite. Southwest Hall also contains a kitchenette and living room area. Graduate students who live in residence halls or suites are not required to participate in a meal program unless it is their personal choice to do so.

During the summer session, residence hall rooms are available for the entire summer session (eight weeks), or are available for a week-to-week lease. Single rooms may be available during the summer session. Students may rent rooms in the summer residence hall for less than the eight week session. The summer residence hall is air conditioned.

When submitting an application for summer residence hall accommodations, the student must make a rental prepayment. Summer session accommodations do not require a prepayment and rental fees will be charged to the student’s account.
