May 18, 2018 to May 18, 2019
Year-round housing contracts are for a continuous stay in one accommodation for the entire summer through the entire academic year (including winter break). Review the Year-round FAQs for more details and review the
Re-Contracting & Selection Flow Chart.

Step 2: Re-Contract

Re-Contract for Housing Online

  • Contracting Online: You may contract online February 12 - March 20. There is no benefit to contracting earlier versus later, provided you contract by the deadline.  After March 20, you may stop by the Residence Life Office to re-contract for housing. You must meet the deadline in order to receive your Priority Number. Please see the Re-Contracting & Selection Flow Chart.
  • Housing Contracts: Once you electronically accept the terms of your online Housing Contract, you are legally bound to fulfilling all of the contract terms and conditions. You may review the terms and conditions of the Housing Contract here.
  • Contracting Deadline: The deadline for contracting is Tuesday, March 20, 11:59 p.m. Returning students who miss the contracting deadline may be accommodated in housing, space permitting.
  • Contracting Confirmation: After you re-contract online, you will receive a confirmation email. Print and save the confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation, contact the Office of Residence Life.
  • Advance Deposit: If you are currently residing on campus, no additional deposit is needed. Your current $200 deposit will be used to secure housing for next year. Your deposit is nonrefundable if you contract for housing now and then later are approved to cancel your Housing Contract
  • Assistance and Questions: If you need assistance with contracting for housing, please contact the Office of Residence Life or call (920) 465-2040.

Step 3: Room Retention

Retain Your Current Assignment

  • If you like where you are living, you may keep your current room or apartment for next year, space permitting. Retention is not guaranteed.
  • Year-round contract: Retain your room online February 12-16.
  • Academic year contract: General Room Retention online, February 21 – March 9.

Step 4: Roommate Groups

Form your Roommate Group Online

  • Decide who you want to live with. Talk to your friends and potential roommates now. You must also decide who will be the leader of the Roommate Group. You may leave a Roommate Group at any time, and can only belong to one group.
  • Build a Roommate Group online after you have completed the re-contracting process. In addition to current residents, your roommate group can pull in new freshmen, transfer students, or other UWGB students not currently living on campus (must be contracted for 2018-19 housing).
  • To form a Roommate Group, you will need the Campus ID number (or full name, spelled correctly) to add them to your group. Students invited to the Roommate Group will receive an email with a link to accept or decline the invitation.
  • Determine who in your roommate group has the best Room Selection time/priority number. The lower the number, the earlier the online Room Selection date/time. The person with the best priority number should be the person to select housing. Make sure this person knows how the group would like to be placed, including bedroom spaces in the private bedroom and shared bedroom apartments. Detailed instructions can be found online.
  • You will receive an email with a link to accept or decline an invitation to a Roommate Group. The Group Leader can manage the group, invite others, and remove members from the group. You may also leave a roommate group and form another group, or be invited to another roommate group.

Step 5: Room Selection

Priority numbers are determined by: a) the number of semesters in housing, b) credits earned, and c) a random number system to provide quality service. Priority numbers with the date and time for online Room Selection will be sent to your campus email on
    March 22.
