I have submitted my exemption request to University Housing – now what?

University Housing has a team dedicated to the exemption request process. The team meets weekly and will review exemption requests on a first come, first serve basis. Once the team has reviewed the exemption request a decision letter will be generated and sent to the student requesting the exemption. Please be advised that University Housing will contact you once the request for exemption has been received and again when a decision has been made. We expect this to be in a window of 30 days and will update students should it take any longer. Please understand we may be dealing with a large volume of exemption requests and we will process them as quickly as possible.

Also – please watch your mail. In the event your request does not have enough information or evidence, you will be contacted to ask for additional materials. Make sure you are opening all mail from UWM.
