All returning students can follow the step-by-step instructions below to sign up for your room on-line.  If you need assistance, please stop by Residence Life, Royce Hall and we will be happy to walk you through the process.  The Board of Regents 2 Year Residency Requirement is enforced for 2014-15 and beyond.  All residence hall contracts are for the full academic year, no cancellations unless you are no longer attending the university.

1) Click on "Room Reservations" under the Quick Links Menu (upper right corner of this page). 

2) Click on "Current Students" (right side of page).

3) Click on "Apply Now, Residence Hall Application, 2014-15" (right side of page).

Your e-application will not be complete and your space will not be reserved beyond your application window until your Residence Life pre-payment is submitted.  You may pay $150 pre-payment via credit card online (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover) or by submitting a check to the Department of Residence Life in Royce Hall.


All residence hall contracts are full academic year contracts.  Students who are involved in a university sponsored program (study abroad, co-op, internship, student teaching) or military service must request a single semester contract through the Department of Residence Life.  Once a contract is signed it is legally binding. Make your decision to sign a Department of Residence Life contract carefully. No resident may cancel their Department of Residence Life agreement for any reason unless they are leaving the university via transfer or withdrawal. Your contract is a legally binding contract and you will be held to the terms therein.

Department of Residence Life Mission

The residence halls of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville strive to provide safe, clean, comfortable living environments as well as opportunities for individuals to be active participants in creating respectful and responsible learning communities.

In accordance with this philosophy, the residence halls of UW-Platteville strive to:

Provide a comfortable living environment by:

  • Providing residents with a living environment conducive to academic success plus social and personal growth.
  • Continuing to improve the physical environment of our halls from both a structural and cleanliness point of view.
  • Developing and exercising sound fiscal and operational practices in order to keep cost at the lowest possible level.

Challenge each resident to realize and develop his or her full potential by:

  • Involving residents in decision-making and in self-discipline through student government in wings, floors, halls, and hall complexes.
  • Interesting students in intellectual and cultural activities and providing more opportunities for students to discuss significant, meaningful ideas and issues.
  • Gaining a satisfactory attitude of the resident population toward the total residence hall living experience.

Residence Life staff members are committed to providing the support and services necessary to enable students to realize these goals.
