Residence Halls

Your home away from home

UW-Eau Claire is here to become your home away from home. Each of our residence halls has its own personality to fit the needs of what you are looking for during your time on campus. Whether you like it quiet or want more of a social atmosphere, you can find your fit. Residence life will also give you the opportunity to experience the value of being part of a diverse community as well as develop and test human relations skills, personal value systems and leadership skills.

Living in the residence halls is great! There are so many of your friends close by. And the food is MUCH better than at high school cafeterias.
