Congratulations to all of you that have been recently admitted to UW-Milwaukee! Now some of you maybe asking "Haley, what do I do now?!" Fear not future panthers for I have the answers you are seeking!
After you are admitted as a first year student, you should receive an email about 2-3 weeks from University Housing! This email will give you information on how to access and fill out your University Housing contract! Once you receive the access email, you can log onto uwm.edu/housing/myhousing to fill out your contract. Your contract is where you will fill out information regarding roommate requests and room type preferences. It is also the place you will choose your meal plan level for the contract period. Approximately 3-5 business days after you submit your contract, a 100$ housing contract deposit will be placed on your PAWS account and needs to be paid within two weeks.
In addition to co-ed floors, university housing also has inclusive housing and single gender community options available to residents!
All first time, full time students under the age of 21 as of September 1st, 2014 are required to live in University Housing! Certain exemptions to this requirement and information on how to file for exemption can be found here. If you are an incoming first time full time student over the age of 21 as of September 1st, 2014 will need to file for exemption but can still have contract access if you would like to live in University Housing!
We look forward to seeing you all in the fall,
