Residence halls open for move-in on Friday, August 23 from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. The front circle will be closed until move-in begins. We cannot accommodate any move-ins prior to the scheduled time. Visitors pulling trailers should arrive after 11 a.m. All students who do not live with their parents or guardians must live on campus. Go directly to your residence hall where move-in crews will be eager to assist you with unpacking your vehicle within the allotted 15 minutes.

Room keys

Students should pick up their room key from the Johnson Controls office in the parking garage of the Recreation Complex (REX) while family members and move-in crews unpack your vehicle. Help will be available to direct you to this area.

Check In

Students and parents must check in at the Orientation Help Desk located in the Recreation Complex Lobby. Here you will receive an Orientation packet, including your detailed W.O.W. schedule, lunch tickets for parents, and other important materials. Here you also can ask questions about W.O.W. activities.


The front circle will be limited to 15 minutes for unloading. Vehicles must be moved to street parking immediately after unloading. This is crucial to a safe and successful experience. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Warrior OneCard

This identification card is necessary for all students in order to access buildings, pay for meals, use library materials and other services. Money can be deposited on your card's declining balance fund through the Business Office or the Automatic Deposit Machine (ADM) to purchase items around campus. Please see the Technology Office in B212 after moving in, and keep your OneCard with you at all times! If your card is lost, notify the Technology Office or WLC Public Safety for deactivation. Students must take care of this need immediately upon arrival in order to eat lunch and gain access to their residence after they move in.


Lunch tickets for parents and commuting students will be provided for Friday. The college food service is provided by Sodexo Corporation. All students living on campus must participate in a food program. Commuting students are not required to enroll in a campus meal plan, but may purchase individual meals throughout the year using cash or money deposited on their Warrior OneCard.


The mailroom is located in the Warrior Underground. Mailbox numbers will be assigned to all new students when they arrive on campus. Mailbox keys may be picked up during business hours. The address for all students is 8800 W. Bluemound Road, Mailbox # _____. Box numbers should be included on every mailing.


Parking is very limited. All campus parking spaces for residents have already been distributed to upperclassmen. Commuting student spaces are still available. If you are a new student with a verifiable medical, academic, and/or special circumstances and wish to be considered for parking, you may obtain an application from Johnson Controls and mail it to the address listed on the form. Do not send payment, and remember to includes all necessary documentation regarding your special circumstance and vehicle registration. Information regarding parking, including links to street parking regulations in Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, is available at

Health Services

Wisconsin Lutheran College is committed to promoting good health to ensure our students' academic success. We have a health care practitioner on campus every weekday, and a professional counselor also is available. Many services can be accessed at the Student Health Center, from simple over-the-counter medications, to injury and illness assessments, physicals, travel screenings, lab work, TB tests, and most vaccinations. When you access care on campus, your services at WLC are covered 100% and you pay nothing.

While the Student Health Center is a great resource and can handle many health concerns, having access to more care is essential. Emergencies arise, and health concerns can escalate and require more urgent care. We encourage you to carefully look over your personal health insurance policy, be sure you are eligible for benefits, and ensure that there are providers near WLC that accept your insurance coverage. It is also helpful to understand your deductible levels and preauthorization requirements. Be sure that the student is aware of where and how to best use their insurance coverage and that they have an insurance card with them at all times and have provided a copy to the Student Health Center.
