Contract and application process

Welcome to the housing contract and application process for 2020-21.

In order to live in the residence halls, you MUST be a full-time student at UWL. If you are unsure of your admission status, please check with the UWL Admissions Office. You will need to pay the $100 enrollment deposit. After 48 hours, you will be able to access the housing contract and application.

Step 2: Learn about the UWL residence halls

Please take a look at the residence hall information on our website to learn about the similarities and differences of our residence halls. Review the room rates.

Contract cancellations prior to May 1, 2020 will receive a full refund of the $150 deposit. Cancellations made prior to May 1 do not need to go through a formal cancellation process.

After May 1, the entire $150 deposit will be forfeited.  If a new incoming student decides to no longer attend UWL their housing contract will be cancelled after notifying the Admissions Office.

This is a legally binding contract that cannot be cancelled without penalty after May 1, 2020 if you attend UW-La Crosse during the academic year 2020-21.  Section 1.C of the housing contract notes the specific criteria for contract cancellation release after May 1.

Eagle Hall room rates expanding section

Important:

Eagle Hall rooms are extended housing and accommodate three students due to the demand for on-campus housing. Students who live in an Eagle room with two other people have their normal room rate reduced each semester. If a room has only 2 people in it, the housing rate will be adjusted to the normal double room rate for each student. (This also applies to rooms with two people who go down to one person occupying that space.) Please see specific room rates. This will be prorated based on the date of the occupancy change.

Check back in March for more information about summer housing.
