The Department of Residence Life at UWRF enforces the UW System 2-year live on campus residency requirement. This policy is in effect for all first and second year students who do not meet the below housing exemption criteria. Exemptions to the policy are clearly explained in our UWRF Housing Contract.

If you do not meet one of the above exemption criteria, you may commute from the home of your parent or legal guardian (if you fall within one of the approved commutable zip codes) by submitting a signed and notarized Commuter Form.
All other reasons for living off-campus are special circumstances and must be reviewed and approved by UWRF Department of Residence Life, and require that you submit all appropriate documentation.
