As an upper-year student in residence, you can enjoy:

  • the short walk (or shuttle ride) to campus
  • all-inclusive residence fees mean you don’t pay extra for:
    • Utilities
    • Unlimited high-speed Internet
    • Maintenance
    • Safety
    • Study rooms
    • The grocery shuttle
  • upper-year only communities, with programs and events designed for you.
  • choosing your own roommates – your friends, your partner… mixed-gender roommate requests are not a problem.
  • being one of the first people to live in our New Residence Facility at UW Place!

Plus, students that are on a local co-op term are eligible to live in residence during winter and spring terms!

How to apply

  1. Decide who you want to live with. Round-up your roommate group, or you can apply on your own and we’ll match you with some new friends. Do you have a larger roommate group than will fit in one of our suites? Or you and your friends want single traditional-style rooms near each other? You can request to live on the same floor or building. We try our best to make special requests happen.
  2. Decide which residence you’d like to live in.
  3. Apply online. The Fall 2017 application opens Wednesday, October 5, 2016. Room offers are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Apply early to make sure you get your first choice of building and room accommodations!
