Residency Requirement

Living on campus is a great way to meet new people, experience Milwaukee events, and have the convenience of all campus resources nearby. Nearly all first-year and second-year students live on campus in our residence halls. All unmarried first-year and second-year students under 21 live in one of our residence halls unless they live with their parents within 30 miles of campus. Students completing their residency requirements are required to have a meal plan.

What We Offer

We offer single-gender or co-ed floors in our traditional residence halls (Herman Viets Tower, Margaret Loock Residence Hall), gender-inclusive, suite-style housing (Regents Residence Hall), and apartment-style housing (Grohmann Tower).
