Over Night Accomodations
What if I want to stay overnight?
This year, we have partnered with The Plaza Hotel and Suites to offer a discount for Orientation families. If you mention that you are coming to Orientation when you call, you will receive rooms for a discounted price. In addition, you will note that this is where we are holding our Orientation social each night before Orientation, making it easy to meet other new UW-Eau Claire students and their families.
To get a true residence hall experience, stay in Towers Hallon-campus. You may still join us as at the Plaza for the social, then head to the Towers Front Desk to stay overnight. Towers Hall is a traditional residence hall and advance reservations are not required. You may check-in at any time.

What is there to do if I come early?
Many of you will come the day before your orientation date to take placement tests or simply to stay overnight the evening before so you can be well-rested for Orientation the following day. We hope you'll come early and take advantage of some great opportunities.
Each evening, prior to Orientation, we will host a social event at the Plaza Hotel and Suites (www.plazaeauclaire.com).We have a hospitatlity room reserved from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm and our Orientation Student Staff will be there each night. This is a great opportunity to begin to get your questions answered, meet other soon-to-be UWEC families, and have some wonderful refreshments. We will send more information/details in your confirmation mailing.
Additionally, the City of Eau Claire has many events happening during the summer. You may want to check out http://volumeone.org/events/calendar or http://www.visiteauclaire.com/calendar.asp to find events of interest for you and your family.
