The UW System Board of Regents residency requirement that freshmen and sophomores are required to live in a community environment is enforced by the Department of Residence Life at UW-Platteville. All residence hall contracts are full academic year contracts. Students who are involved in a university sponsored program (co-op, education abroad, internship, student teaching) or are called for military service, must request a release from the spring semester through the Department of Residence Life. Once a contract is signed (box checked), and $150 prepayment is paid, it is legally binding. Make your decision to sign (check box) a Department of Residence Life contract carefully. No resident may cancel their Department of Residence Life contract for any reason unless they are no longer attending the university. Your contract is a legally binding contract,and you will be held to the terms therein.
NOTE: The earlier a Residence Life e-contract is submitted by a student, the more likely we are able to honor their top preference for halls, roommate requests, etc. There is no guarantee, no matter when an e-contract is filed, that we are able to honor preferences, but the earlier the better.
