Taking Food To-go

Wondering what the Ticket to Takeout Program offers? In addition to one green reusable to-go container for your food, you can also receive disposable containers for your soup and drinks! All food must fit inside the containers with the exception of one piece of fruit and a cookie or dessert bar.

House Fellows & Your Community

Hopefully by now you have had a chance to meet your House Fellow (HF) and other HFs in your building or community. House Fellows are typically undergraduate student staff members that help keep our communities safe and are here to support residents during their experience living on campus. They are also responsible for addressing concerns, potential policy violations, and they want to make sure you have a successful year in the residence halls.

Latinx Heritage Month: Expression Beyond the Margins

The Latinx Community continuously demonstrates its vibrant culture within and outside the borders set on our identities and histories. Speaking different languages, practicing different traditions and beliefs, the community regularly gets put into categories that don’t quite fit. Latinx Heritage Month at UW–Madison will celebrate breaking out of this with dances, performances, embroidery, and many other expressions of the community.

Return to Housing Next Year

Each year, many students choose to #LiveWithBucky and live on campus in University Housing so they have more time for the things that matter to them, like studying, friends, and fun. As you research your living options for next year, consider all the ways living on-campus sets you up for success. Our process to return to the residence halls will start in late October.
