Housing and Residence Life

Living on campus at UW-Stevens Point is a significant component of the value associated with the UWSP experience. It is said that many students learn just as much living on campus as they do in their classrooms. UWSP values different living options to best serve our students, and the student attributes are supported by the layout of the residence halls and the importance of a sense of community.

Dining Services

Dining places a strong emphasis on quality, value, student employment, and sustainability. UWSP made the decision in 2008 to transition to self-operated dining after many decades of contracted food service. In June 2009, Dining was created as a department within the Division of Student Affairs and we have been serving the campus community ever since.

UWSP Housing follows the UW Board of Regents’ live-on requirement. This state’s students are required to live on campus their first two years (first-year and sophomore) after their high school graduation. For more information regarding the policy, commuting requests, and exceptions to the policy, please view the full live-on requirement here.

The UWSP Housing Contract requires that all students living in traditional residence halls participate in a meal plan. A dining plan waiver may only be granted for documented medical conditions. If you would like to request an exemption, please submit a Dining Plan Exemption Request Form.

Accepted students will choose a room and meal plan through the UWSP Housing Portal. We encourage all students to review the living options outlined on the Housing and Residence Life and Dining Plan websites so they are prepared to complete the online housing contract and application.

Steps for “How to Apply”
  1. Activate your UWSP account by following the instructions, please click here.
  2. Login to the UWSP Housing Portal using your UWSP email, please click here.
  3. Select the appropriate application (for example, Academic Year Traditional Hall Application) and follow the instructions to complete it.

The meal plan will begin the day you move to campus. Each dining location offers a variety of menus and food offerings, learn more here. The meal plan is valid during the semester, but all dining locations are closed during break periods (fall, winter, spring).

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student body created to provide help for students across all aspects of residence life. They are dedicated to making the campus living experience better for residents by recommending policy changes and providing special events and social issue programs.

Labor of Love is a one-time commitment where first-year students and residence hall staff go into the Stevens Point community and provide service ranging from cleaning local parks, to assisting campus community neighbors. Please click here for more information.
