Residence Halls

Not Your Typical
1st-Year Housing

Get to know your neighbors in our smaller buildings.

We don't call them "dorms," because you won't find high-rise dorms with a thousand nameless students at UW-Green Bay. We don't have communal bathrooms, either! Our unique approach to on-campus living means smaller residential buildings that foster a sense of community and togetherness. Our largest residence hall houses 200 students, and most have less than 60 residents.

Small Residence Halls

UW-Green Bay has ten 30-room residence hall buildings. Our residence hall rooms are double occupancy, so this means that each community houses 60 students.
