Housing + Residence Life


Our 14 residence halls are consistently a popular choice for nearly 4,000 students at UW-Eau Claire. Our halls offer far more than just a place to sleep and relax between classes; there are many opportunities for Blugolds to get involved in their residence hall community by running for their hall government, getting involved in one of the many student organizations and attending any of the social, educational, and multicultural programs.
