TOP 10 REASONS TO LIVE ON CAMPUS 1. Roommates Having a roommate is one of the best things about living on campus. Many lifelong friendships have started as roommates at college!
2. Resident Assistants (RAs) Another one of the best things about living on campus is having a RA. RAs are upper-class students who live on campus, and their role is to help you achieve the living learning experience!
3. Social and Recreational Activities Thereâ€™s always something happening on campus! From concerts, dances and comedians to intramural sports, student government and student organizations â€“ thereâ€™s something for everyone!
4. Community Center The Residence Life Community Center offers a place to meet other students, study and participate in social activities! It also offers an information desk, student mailroom and computer service center.
5. Around the Clock & Around the Calendar Service Campus housing is open 365 days per year. Plus staff is available to serve you during the evening, weekend and holiday hours too.
6. Convenience Living on campus means living right where you study, work and recreate; alleviating time consuming and costly commuting expenses!
7. Safety and Security The campus is served around the clock by Public Safety Officers. The officers monitor the academic buildings, housing facilities, parking lots, and grounds to ensure your safety.
8. Affordability Living on campus is cheaper than commuting from off campus! Your on-campus housing cost includes all utilities, cable television service, Internet access, security services, and more.
9. Employment Opportunities Working on campus saves commuting time and expense! Also, your campus employer will be supportive of your academics.
10. Academic Success Many students who live on campus earn higher grades and graduate at higher rates than their peers who live elsewhere. Remember, your academic success is our top priority!
WHAT OUR RESIDENTS SAY ABOUT LIVING ON CAMPUS Every year the Office of Residence Life conducts an online resident satisfaction survey. The survey includes over 80 questions designed to assess resident satisfaction with housing facilities, programs, services, climate, and staff. Year after year, our residents report high levels of satisfaction with their residential experience at UW-Green Bay.
“When I came here and lived on campus, it was an amazing experience. Living on campus really helped me develop into the person I have become today.” - Matt
“I owe a lot of my personal development to living on campus. I also met some of my best friends during my first year on campus.” - Lindy
WHEN YOU CHOOSE A CAMPUS, YOU’RE CHOOSING A COMMUNITY TOO The Green Bay community is a great place to live! In fact, Green Bay is the trade, transportation and cultural heart of Northeastern Wisconsin. Major attractions include NFL football and the University’s Weidner Center for the Performing Arts – a 2,000 seat concert hall which brings nationally known performers to campus. UW-Green Bay is situated on a scenic 700 acre site overlooking the waters of Green Bay, and it includes a nine-hole golf course and a beautiful arboretum with walking and jogging trails throughout. Prime resort and outdoor recreation areas surround the region’s growing metropolitan area of over 200,000.
YOUR ON-CAMPUS DINING EXPERIENCE Students who live on campus eat many of their meals and buy some of their groceries at the University Union! Students use their Campus ID Card to purchase food, groceries, goods, and services with their Dining Points and Pass Points. A campus Dining Plan is required for students living in our residence hall rooms; and it is optional for students living in our apartment style accommodations. Students living in our residence hall rooms will be able to select their preferred Dining Plan option via our Residence Life Online Express Check-in process. Dining Plans are declining balance accounts, where the “Point” or dollar amount is equal to the Dining Plan selected. Dining Points may be used in an “a la carte” style in our campus restaurants and convenience store. Students may also purchase Pass Points in a prepaid declining balance account. Unlike Dining Points, Pass Points may be used to purchase non-food related goods and services wherever cash is accepted on campus. For example, Pass Points can be used for doing your laundry or making purchases at the Phoenix Bookstore. Additional information about campus dining services and Point Plans is available at
