Housing Events

Experience the fun

Each year, campus hosts a variety events that tie directly to the students living in the residence halls. We welcome new and returning students during welcome week, host homecoming festivities, and invite Blugolds to have family visit.

Blugold Welcome

The primary goal of Blugold Welcome is to welcome and integrate first year students into the University community. Through proactive programming aimed at developing a sense of belonging within the first six weeks of the academic year, we strive to retain residence hall students.

All residence hall students are invited to participate in Blugold Welcome, which consists of a series of Residence Life events and activities designed to support the transition from high school into our university community.

Blugold Welcome kicks off the academic year during the Fall semester move-in weekend with a variety of welcoming activities and continues with several social get-togethers that explore such issues as roommate and other relationships, assertiveness and empowerment, and academic success and goals.  Please view the schedule below for activities and events happening over the move-in week.

Family Weekend 2021


The health and safety of our Blugold Families is of the utmost importance to us. In order to support the measures being implemented to prevent exposure to COVID19, UWEC Family Weekend Fall 2020 has been tentatively postponed until Spring 2021. Details regarding dates and activities will come after the fall semester has concluded. Thank you for your patience.
