Room Dimensions
 
UW-L's eleven residence halls are conveniently located within easy walking distance to the campus academic, administrative and athletic facilities. While each of the halls offer traditional-style communal living spaces, they also feature distinct atmospheres and unique amenities. Regardless of which hall you choose to live in, you will be part of a welcoming, active environment that supports a balance of academic success and social opportunities. Welcome home!

Double Rooms
The majority of student rooms at UW-L accommodate two people, and are laid out in a similar fashion to the diagram below (dimensions may vary slightly by hall). Each double room is approximately 15' 6" long by 11' 6" wide by 8' high. Rooms are furnished with a desk, chair, bed, dresser and closet (2' 2" deep by 3' 6" wide by 7' 6" high) for each resident, in addition to a small refrigerator shared by both occupants. All rooms have cable, for which residents will need to bring their own televisions. Rooms in all halls are also equipped with direct Internet connections, and wireless connecters are available throughout all halls. (For more information, visit RLIS).

Triple Rooms
Angell, Coate, Drake and Hutchison Halls feature a limited number of rooms that accommodate three residents, as shown by the diagram located below. Triple rooms are approximately 20' long by 10' 8" wide by 8' high, and are furnished with a desk, chair, bed, dresser and closet for each resident, in addition to two small refrigerators shared by all three occupants. Triple rooms have cable, for which residents will need to bring their own televisions. All triple rooms are also equipped with direct Internet connections both through room jacks and wireless access points. (For more information, visit RLIS).

Is there a closet, a dresser, etc. for each of the three students assigned to a triple room?
Yes, there are 3 of everything that there are 2 of in a double room.

What happens if one person in a triple room cancels/is ineligible? Do the 2 remaining get a new roommate?
YES. If it happens before room assignments and the Office of Residence Life is aware of it, the two remaining will most likely be assigned to a double room instead.
