First-year students are primarily assigned Cambridge Commons, Riverview Residence Hall, and Sandburg traditional Towers (North, South, and West Towers).
University Housing areas that often serve sophomore and above students, such as Sandburg East Towers, Cambridge Commons Upgrades, Purin Hall, and Kenilworth Square Apartments also feature full kitchens in addition to semi-private bathrooms.
To better meet the needs of upperclassmen, Kenilworth Square Apartments are limited to students who are 21 years or older.
University Housing is committed to the safety and security of residents. University Housing residential facilities include 24/7 student security staff. Each residence hall has a Service Desk that serves an information resource for students, provides mail service to residential students, as well as provides products for sale or rental.
Students and guests are also held accountable for behavioral expectations while living or visiting University Housing facilities.
Residence Life is the group of University Housing professionals and student staff members assigned to help your student succeed both personally and academically at UWM. Resident Assistants – an upperclassman who serves as a guide, peer mentor, and event planner for a set of residents in a particular “house” in University Housing.
Our residence life professionals help guide the overall community and student development. In addition to supervising the Resident Assistants, these professionals meet with students who might need additional guidance on academics, want to get involved, might need help mediating more difficult roommate conflicts, or have behavioral concerns.
