Summer term housing in the UW–Madison University Residence Halls is available. We anticipate summer housing will be located in Dejope and Phillips Residence Halls. If you complete a housing contract for summer term, you could be assigned to either of these residence halls and the location is subject to change. Students will not be released from their summer term housing contract based on location.
Updated information on Summer Housing can be found on the UW–Madison University Housing website.

All Summer Term students have access to UHS services, from care for illnesses and injuries to preventive care, psychological and psychiatric care. To get started, call UHS at 608-265-5600 or log in to your MyUHS account. View more details about UHS services. (If you are not enrolled in summer courses, you can pay the Summer Health Fee to access care.)
If you’re new to Mental Health Services, schedule an Access Appointment, a 30-minute time where a clinician will listen to your concerns and determine next steps for clinical care. Medical Services requests appointments and is often able to accept drop-ins. All UHS services are unlimited, except for individual counseling; however, Mental Health Services offers unlimited Access Appointments, group counseling and crisis services.
Check out the UHS remote health page for virtual resources that include videos on coping, wellness, sleep, grief and relationships and wellness resources like on-demand fitness, yoga and meditation. There are also identity-specific resources for students of color, international students and LGBTQ+ students.
Staff at UHS want you to know that asking for help is sign of strength. Don’t hesitate to call their 24/7 mental health crisis line at 608-265-5600 (option 9) and the after-hours nurse triage line at 608-265-5600 (option 1).

Libraries continue to offer in-person services, including book pickup, collection access, study spaces, computer labs and equipment checkout.

The Writing Center is open for all your editorial needs this Summer Term. Services are virtual and include individual instruction, workshops, writing mentorships and graduate writing groups. Schedule an appointment with an instructor at WCOnline, where you can choose between virtual meetings and written feedback. The Writer Center summer workshops offer a quick and easy way to learn writing strategies, approaches to different genres of writing and English language conventions.
