New Students

Welcome to The Hill!

From the moment you and your family pull up to your residence hall on Move-in Day, you become part of the Badger community. Student, faculty and staff volunteers will swarm your vehicle, unload it in record time, and transport your belongings to your room in your new home. That’s how we do things on The Hill, because we’re a family.

On-campus living for first-year students

All full-time, traditional undergraduate students not residing locally with parents or legal guardians are required to live on campus and participate in a campus meal plan. First-year students are required to purchase the unlimited meal plan.

Each residence hall has Resident Advisors (RAs) who provide leadership, enforce college policies, coordinate activities, and serve as valuable resources for students.
