Discover your purpose in one of our welcoming residence halls. Your campus life experience is important and designed to support your personal growth and academic success. There are a number of ways to get involved while you make Stevens Point your new home.
UWSP houses 13 residence halls across campus. Every hall has community kitchens, a computer lab, laundry facilities, study lounges, group meeting rooms, secured mailboxes, and recycling facilities. Each room has a loftable bed (including twin extra-long mattresses), dresser, desk, and closet for each resident.
UWSP Housing follows the UW Board of Regents’ live-on requirement stating all students who are two years or less out of high school to live on campus.

These communities are in collaboration with campus partners. These community experiences offer learning opportunities for students to engage in a variety of activities to connect them to the university and to faculty/staff while providing a living space for students to connect what they are learning inside the classroom to their everyday life.
Members of Themed Communities reside on a floor or wing of a residence hall designated for students that have been accepted to the Community Experience. These community experiences offer a safe, supportive environment for students with similar interests, majors, and/or identities to live in. These environments allow student to make deep social connections by engaging with peers around shared education experiences, and can improve students’ academic success through intentional programming, co-curricular learning experiences, and faculty/staff engagement.
