Stimac Hall and West Residence Hall for freshmen and sophomores feature "house" units clustered around common living areas. Each room is occupied by two or three students; two rooms constitute a suite having one bathroom to serve the four or five students. Rooms are wired for access to the campus computer network, the Internet and cable TV.
The first floor commons area of each hall contains lounge furniture and study tables, a kitchenette, laundry facilities, and meeting and music rooms. The first floor also contains a residence counselor's apartment.
These residence halls were designed to meet the needs of those making the transition from high school to college. Those needs include greater privacy, maintaining responsibility for their own academic and personal lives, and managing their own quarters. Life in the residence halls will encourage social interaction, exchange of ideas, and spiritual growth in a Christian community.
Resident upperclassmen normally live in apartments or houses owned and managed by the college. All apartments and houses are within 5-10 minutes walking distance of the library, classrooms, Campus Center, Center for Arts and Performance, and the Recreation Complex.
As a Christian community, Wisconsin Lutheran maintains rooms, suites, apartments, and houses as part of college housing.
Roommates are assigned by the Residence Life Committee after accounting for residents' preferences as indicated on their housing application.
Sophomore and junior residents participate in a housing lottery held in the spring semester of each year. Resident students have the opportunity to select roommates and living spaces for the following academic year.
Residence Life reserves the right to change housing based on needs of the college. Every effort is made to respect the roommate preferences of the resident students.
