Applying for Housing


You are encouraged to apply for housing as early as possible. Students are required to live in the halls for the first two (2) years after they graduate from high school (to see the full UW System Board of Regents' policy, please click here).  

Steps for "How to Apply"

  1. Review the living options outlined on the Residential Living website so you can be prepared to complete your online housing contract and application. 

  2. Activate your UWSP account by following the instructions, please click here

  3. Login to the UWSP Housing Portal, please click here

  4. Select the appropriate application (for example, Academic Year Traditional Hall Application) and follow the instructions to complete. 

Important Information to Know

  • Students will receive notifications about the room selection process at a later date. Students are encouraged to check their UWSP email daily for updates, and important information regarding housing. 

  • Timeslots will be assigned for students to select their hall and room assignment. Communication will be shared on when this process will be taking place. 

    • Timeslots are determined by the student's housing contract signed date. This means the earlier the housing application is completed and signed, the earlier date and time is assigned for a student to select their own space.
