Make UWM your home base. By living on campus or nearby, you’ll discover new people, new perspectives and new connections. 

Residence halls all have extra cleaning and safety measures in place. While vaccinations aren’t required for students living on campus, they’re highly recommended! 


Whether you’re a new or a returning student, there’s a home for you. In addition, our Living Learning Communities offer students a chance to connect with others who are studying similar subjects.  

How to Apply

Freshmen are required to live in residence halls, so their housing application is automatically tied to their UWM application. Hop on that contract as soon as you can. If you’re a returning student interested in living on campus, be sure to fill out a residence hall request form.
