Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
By living in one of our residence halls, you will have an opportunity to become part of an exciting, dynamic and rewarding environment that will encourage personal development through community living and involvement.
You were recently sent information about how to view your hall and room assignment as well as roommate information. You will have an opportunity to visit the hall you’ve been assigned to between 3:15-5:00 p.m. during your Orientation session this summer.
If you are a student who is currently unassigned, we will notify you as soon as we are able to assign you a space, but no later than August 15th. Feel free to check the My UWEC Housing for updated assignment information. In the meantime, check out the links below for more information about residence life.

Classes officially begin on Tuesday, September 3rd at 8:00 a.m. Unless we receive word from you concerning a late arrival on campus, your space may be released and reassigned to another student after this date. Check this website around August 1st for more information regarding specific residence hall move-in times.
