UWRF Residence Living

Go Here! Live There!

CVTC is happy to partner with the University of Wisconsin River Falls (UWRF) to offer an on-campus living opportunity for enrolled students. UWRF welcomes CVTC students to the UWRF campus and its residence hall community. We strive to create residence hall environments where students engage socially and academically, experience a sense of belonging, and feel supported by staff and peers. The following information will guide you through the application process and answer several of your questions. Reach out to our office if you need assistance or have additional questions.

Why live in the UWRF residence halls? The residence halls offer benefits including:

Convenience: Located close to the CVTC River Falls campus; eat on-campus using your meal plan; no monthly bills because utilities are included.

Support: Residence Hall Directors, Community Assistants, and Residence Assistants (RA’s), provide support for students living on campus. Thus, these students tend to thrive socially and academically.

Friends: Residence hall students make friends and meet others with common and/or unique interests.

Leadership: Students involved in campus activities help build their technical and soft skills that increase their confidence and enhance their resume.

Important to know:

  • Monday, July 15 is the deadline to apply.
  • Students must commit to living in the residence halls for two semesters (August 25, 2024 - May 23, 2025).
  • Students must remain in good academic standing, minimum 2.0 GPA, and be enrolled in at least twelve credits.
  • Residence halls eligibility may be affected by past or current criminal convictions or student conduct violations.
  • A meal plan through UWRF Dining Services is required. Students are automatically placed in a 45-block meal plan. Changes are allowed at the start of each semester.
