Living on campus at UW-Stevens Point is a significant component of the value associated with the UWSP experience. It is said that many students learn just as much living on campus as they do in their classrooms. UWSP values different living options to best serve our students; we currently offer a single room, a double room, and an apartment-style living option for our students.
The residence halls are in close proximity to the Debot Dining center, local and chain coffee shops, restaurants, as well as lots of outdoor recreational space. Our 280-acre nature reserve (Schmeekle) is literally across the street and is the perfect place to escape after a study session or go for a leisurely walk or run on a nice day.
The two primary workout facilities and the residence halls are located in the same part of the campus for students to easily access. Most students on campus are active and value the different dimensions of Wellness. These student attributes are supported by the layout of the residence halls and the importance of a sense of community.
It is common for students to develop tight-knit support groups with the peers that they live with. Each Residence Hall has a student-led leadership group that creates engagement opportunities for all of the students in the halls. This group hosts campus information sessions, fun activities, and organized trips to enjoy different aspects of the Stevens Point community.
We have a couple of different types of living options. Single rooms are an option, so you would just live by yourself in a regular residence hall room. You can live in a double room, so that would be you and your roommate in a traditional residence hall room.
And then we also have the Suites@201, which is our apartment-style living here on campus. And so there are four rooms where you would live individually in your room. And then there's a community living room, a community kitchen. You have a vanity. You have a shower, and you have a toilet, and that's all within one suite.
DeBot Dining Center is super convenient because it's located right in the heart of the residence halls, so you can just walk right outside of your hall, and there's the food. You've got an all-you-care-to-eat option. There's a convenient store option. It's really nice.
The advantage of being part of a living learning community is that you can really make new friends easier and also develop good connections for people to study with and get to know. So within the walking distance of the residence halls, we have a cardio center, which is in the Allen Quad. And we also have the strength center, which is in the Champions Hall.
You can always go to Allen Center for working out if you want to do some heavy lifting. And if you want to go out for running, you can always go to Schmeeckle Reserve, have a nice run there.
If you're looking for something to do off-campus, downtown is really close, and there's lots of great places to eat and shop there. We've got lots of restaurants, art galleries, the farmer's market takes place down there. So there's lots of options.
