Meals are served in the Campus Center dining hall. There are 19 meals offered per week: three meals per day Monday through Friday, and a brunch and evening meal on Saturday and Sunday. You sign up and pay for your meal plan at registration.


Limited vehicle parking is available on campus for both resident and full-time commuting students. Parking permits can be purchased at the parking office in the lower-level of the Recreation Complex. However, because on-campus parking is limited, it is recommended that resident students not bring automobiles to campus.


The Warrior Underground is the place to talk, watch TV, or play pool, foosball, ping pong, cards, darts, or whatever craze this year brings. Residence hall lounges have their own TVs. The park-like campus is a place to walk, play basketball or sand volleyball, or sprawl on the grass to talk or study. Intramural sports are offered throughout the academic year. Students can also take advantage of the unlimited recreational and cultural activities available in the metropolitan Milwaukee area, from beaches to concerts to sporting events.


Very limited storage is available for tucking away your luggage or storing a bike. For those living a far distance from home, arrangements can be made to have a moving company pick up your belongings at the end of the school year and return them after summer.


Courtesy phones are available across campus for calling local and 800 numbers.
