Living on campus provides students with special opportunities for growth, learning, fun and friendship.  At the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, we believe that residence hall living is an integral part of the university experience. Over 3,700 students live in 12 university residence halls.  However, the wings, floors and halls are sized just right so that the environment is welcoming, friendly and easy to get to know people. 

The Department of Residence Life at UW-Platteville offers a wide variety of living options to fit the needs of today’s college students. All residence halls offer a staff of Resident Assistants, Senior Assistants and a Resident Director dedicated to providing inclusive, student-centered, academically focused communities for the residents. The involvement and assistance of our dedicated staff helps to make our residence halls enjoyable places to live and work.
