Themed Communities

Our residence halls have multiple themed communities that residents can move into at any time. We hope all residents find a place to live that they can thrive in and feel safe while completing their academic journeys.

Academically Focused Living Environment

Evans Hall will be a student-driven environment, where mature and creative students learn from, and challenge one another. Students share a commitment to academic excellence, involvement, and responsible living. Honors Community and Cultural Connections are 2 of the themed communities that will reside in Evans Hall. 

Honors Community Overview

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Department of Residence Life currently works with the Honors program on campus to provide an Honors floor located in Evans Hall. Any student that participates in the Honors program can live in this community. This is a great opportunity to interact with other Honors students and be provided with support from the faculty and staff that work directly with the Honors program.

Cultural Connections

Located in Evans Hall, students from a variety of backgrounds will live with and learn from one another in a culturally rich living environment. The community is designed to foster an environment of cultural enrichment and exposure. Students can build meaningful intercultural peer relationships with both domestic and international students.

Rainbow Floor Overview

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Department of Residence Life has a themed community devoted to fostering an inclusive community to students whom identify as members and/or are allies of the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning and all other identities that are housed within the appropriate umbrella) Community. Students can choose to room with the person they are most comfortable living with, regardless of gender or sexuality. An inclusive community is one committed to social justice and based on respect for and celebration of people of diverse sexualities and genders.

Fraternity Sorority Life Floor

Fraternity and sorority members can live together on a floor in North Scott Hall.

Junior & Senior Student Housing Options

A housing community has been designed to cater to the unique needs of our students who before the 1st day of fall classes will have achieved 48 credit hours or 21 years of age. The fourth floor of Fletcher Hall has been selected to house only our Junior and Senior residents (as well as anyone 21 or older). All Junior and Senior students will have the opportunity to select their housing choice during room sign-up. All qualifying students will have the opportunity to select from the specially assigned spaces in Fletcher and purchase it as a single occupant space.

Our Junior and Senior students are also welcomed to select either Horizon Village and/or our Fletcher Hall Triple spaces (or any other open residential area), however Horizon Village and/or our Fletcher Hall Triple spaces will not be assigned as single occupancy dwellings. Junior/Senior students would also have to follow the same procedures and timeline for signing up for those spaces. The community being held for our Junior/Senior students offers climate control in their rooms.

Lastly, for your convenience, any space selected by a Junior/Senior student will have the option to sign up for a Fall only semester housing contract. We ask that you communicate the request with our office right away if you would like a Fall only contract as it must be signed before the Fall semester begins.

We will make every effort to honor your request if space is available. Please reach out to Residence Life via email and we will answer any additional questions you may have,
