Living on campus puts you close to campus amenities and allows you to easily explore everything UWSP has to offer. Here are some great things about our on-campus living options:
Front desk services
Students can check out items such as sporting equipment, games, cooking, and baking utensils at no additional charge. Mail and packages are sent directly to students through almost all major mail carriers and can be accessed by a personal mailbox.
There is a full laundry service (washer and dryer) in the basement of each residence hall.
Full-service kitchens are provided on each floor of each residence hall (stove, oven, microwave, and refrigerator).
There are two residence halls in each of the three quads that designate one of the two bathrooms on the second floor as “gender-inclusive” restrooms; anyone can use this restroom. Students can request to be assigned one of these halls when completing the Housing and Dining contract.
There are recycling chutes available to students on each floor of every residence hall.
Great to be inside or outside
Each residence hall has a study lounge in the basement in addition to cable and Wi-Fi access in all the rooms. The residence halls are nearby our 280-acre Schmeeckle Nature Reserve with walking trails and catch and release fishing. There are sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, and basketball courts for students to enjoy outside of their hall. The Allen Fitness Center, Champions Hall fitness center, and DeBot Dining Center are all located close to the residence hall area for students to easily get a quick bite or a workout.
You can get even more information about life on campus at the Residential Living website.
UWSP has three residence hall quads. There's Allen Quad, North DeBot and South DeBot. When you walk into the residence hall, there is always a desk worker with a smiling face to greet you and welcome you into the building. At front desk, you can receive mail and you can also check out games as well as cookware. We also have great facilities. We have a large study lounge in each building, as well as a few individual quiet study rooms. There's also a computer lab that is accessed by all residents. Most residence halls have music rooms and fitness rooms, as well as a laundry room that residents can use their Point Card, and some residence halls also have volleyball courts outside. There's also picnic areas.
So we also have really great dining services on campus. We have Upper DeBot and Lower DeBot. Lower DeBot is more of a convenience style, while Upper DeBot is more of your all you can eat buffet. They have really great selections. Specifically for me, I'm a vegetarian. There's always options for everyone who has dietary restrictions, and they have a great selection of pasta. There are comfort foods from around the world, and there's also a grill option as well as a salad bar.
The room itself is a really great place to be, and it really helps you kind of break out and have to make those new friendships and give you that fresh start that a lot of people are looking for when they come to college.
