CVTC is happy to partner with UWEC to offer a convenient, secure residence hall housing option for CVTC students at UWEC. CVTC students will be partnered with other CVTC students or UWEC students and have the benefit of being part of a living community with special programming aimed at the college age student.

Why should you live in the UWEC residence halls? The residence halls offer an abundance of benefits including:

CONVENIENCE: Location is close to CVTC Eau Claire campuses, utilities are included with no monthly bills.

SUPPORT: Students that live in campus housing tend to have higher grades, and thrive socially because of the support.

FRIENDS: Always someone around to study or hang out with.

LEADERSHIP: Opportunities to build your resume by getting involved. Students that live in campus housing have better integration and commitment to school.

Things to keep in mind:
  • You must commit to living in the residence halls for two semesters (August - May).
  • You need to remain in good academic standing and be enrolled in at least twelve credits.
  • Meal plan is not required but strongly encouraged.
