Fall Occupancy

New students cannot apply online for Fall occupancy! Your application for University Housing is directly tied to your application for admission to UWM. By answering "yes" to the on-campus housing question on your UWM admissions application you will be placed on our list of applicants. It is very important to apply to UWM early if you wish to live in a University Housing facility . The university will begin accepting applications in mid-September each year.

Continuing UWM students may apply for housing by submitting the web form.

Other Housing Options

UWM Neighborhood Housing

Admission to UWM does not guarantee on-campus housing. We routinely have a waiting list of prospective students. You are not guaranteed housing until you receive a contract, return it with a deposit, and receive an acceptance letter from University Housing. If you do not receive a University Housing contract, you should begin looking for off-campus housing approximately 3 months before you would like to start your lease. The Neighborhood Housing Office can help you find rentals and roommates.


Non-Discrimination Policy

University Housing accepts contracts and assigns rooms without regard to race, color, creed, or national origin. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee does not discriminate on the basis of sex in admission to any educational program or activity administered by this institution. The policy extends to employment as well as such programs and activities.
