UW Residence Halls will accept Reservations from April 1 through June 9, 2009 for SISG 2009 attendees on a space-available basis only. Please read all of the information about the UW Residence Halls thoroughly to make sure you understand their policies and to make an informative decision about your lodging needs.

Guests can call or email to be housed for any range of SISG dates. Guests must pay for a single rate unless they have pre-arranged for a roommate during their set of dates. If they have a roommate for those dates, both the Guest and their roommate each need to make a separate reservation and submit the name of their roommate when making the reservation (last-minute changes in occupancy status will not be allowed). A guest with a roommate will be charged the double rate. All reservations must be completed at least three days prior to arrival. No walk-in registrations will be accepted.
