Fall 2020 Housing Contract Updates

Fall 2020 Housing Contract Updates

The University Housing Contract Process for Fall 2020 has been updated.

Due to the uncertainty for prospective students and their families, the Contract Priority Deadline, and associated deposit due date, is being delated to June 1 (from its original date of May 1).

Because students are assigned by random lottery, students who complete the contract on or before June 1 will still have an equal chance with all other residents to get their preferred LLC, roommates, or room types.

Based on this change, the new key housing dates for incoming students are:

May 31: Deadline for preference changes for any contract submitted on or before May 31, 2020. Visit www.uwm.edu/myhousing to login and access preferences.

May 31: Deadline for students to cancel their contract and still have $50 of the $100 deposit refunded to them. Cancellations after this date forfeit the entire $100 deposit. https://uwm.edu/housing/secure/residence-hall-contract-cancellation-form/

June 1: Last day to submit a contract and be eligible for the first room assignment lottery. Practically, this is the last day to sign a contract and have a reasonable chance of getting a preferred LLC, roommate, or room type.

June 5: Projected first day of releasing assignments. Due to ongoing Sandburg renovations and the delayed contract priority deadline, there will be many students who are not assigned on this day. Those assignments continue throughout the summer, usually on Fridays. Students will have to log in to MyHousing at www.uwm.edu/myhousing to view room assignment, as well as roommates, suitemates, and assigned move-in day.

July 1: Move-In Guide is posted online and emailed to residents who have received a room assignment. Due to COVID-19, it is unlikely hardcopy versions of the move-in guide will be mailed.

August 28-31: Move-In Dates.
