Housing and Residence Life

A Student’s Guide to Priority Numbers

Re-Contracting may have just ended, but we are not finished yet! You have already signed your housing contract, now it is time to think about WHERE you are going to be living next year.

Today the Office of Residence Life sends out Room Selection Priority Numbers. This number includes both the date and time at which you can select your desired room for the 2017-18 academic year during the Room Selection Event on March 29th & 30th in the University Union Phoenix Rooms.

Many students wonder “What do I do with my priority number?”, “How was it assigned to me?”, or “My desired roommate has a higher priority number, what do I do?”, well you have questions and we have answers! Here is a quick breakdown of what your Priority Number means and how to use it:

Your priority number is assigned to you based on three criteria: 1) the number of semesters you have lived in housing, 2) credits earned, and 3) a random number system to provide quality service and minimize long lines and waiting. When arriving at the Room Selection Event all students MUST BRING with them their Room Selection Ticket which contains your priority number, the date, and time you were assigned to choose you room.

If one of your desired roommates has an earlier selection time, only one person has to show up at that time with ALL of your desired roommates’ room selection tickets to select the room. If not all roommates will be present at Room Selection (which is just fine) discuss ahead of time a second or third room option as your first may not be available.

If none of your desired roommates are available at the earliest room selection time please come to the Office of Residence Life Community Center between 9am and 4pm (M-F) by March 28th.  There is a form that you will need to complete to allow Residence Life Staff to assign you to one of your desired housing options for 2017-18 based on availability.

With any specific questions regarding Priority Numbers, Room Selection Tickets, or the Room Selection Event, please contact the Office of Residence Life by e-mail at housing@uwgb.edu or by phone at (920) 465-2040.

Re-Contracting Response Winner #2

Re-Contracting is about halfway done and that means it’s time to give out some more prizes! Earlier this week we asked students to share with us their favorite memory with either their current or past roommate(s) and we got some AWESOME responses! Here are just a few of the amazing responses we got:

“My current roomies Taylor Campbell , Tristin Jean St Mary , & myself went to every hotel/banquet hall in the area all dressed up looking for a wedding to crash. We put together a wedding present and everything and did not end up crashing a wedding because we couldn’t find one.” - Emily Seideman

“Going to see the band Almost Classy in the Phoenix Club and having them serenade our table. They even complimented our dance moves, and blew kisses to us from the stage!” - Caitlin Balliet

“Study sessions that turned into Modern Family binge watching sessions after about ten minutes of studying!” - Kalynn Krause

“My roommates Taylor Campbell , Emily Seideman & I created the UW-Green Bay Hip Hop Team at 2am one night. We didn’t think it would actually happen but when we woke up the next morning we decided to start planning.” - Tristin Jean St Mary

We even had a few responses from alumni including:

“I graduated in 2008, but I still would like to share that I loved how my roommates in Harden and the ladies across the hall used to come and go from each other’s apartments like it was one place with two kitchens. We used to have family style dinners where we each would make something to add to the meal. Sometimes we would invite the men’s basketball team to eat with us, too.” - Erin E. Wojcik

Unfortunately we could only choose one winner to receive a $25 giftcard to the Phoenix Bookstore and that winner is . . . . Emily Ahrens! Emily responded to our question with the following story:Roomie Winner

“I absolutely love Disney and my roomie (and soon to be teacher ) Taylor Fohey made me this painting for Christmas, in honor of us watching UP together on one of the first weekends of school and bawling our eyes out as a form of roommate bonding. We have since watched many a Disney movie together, but this meant the world to me! (And I may have screamed upon receiving it) Love you, TayTay!”

Thank you to everyone who responded and shared with us their favorite roommate memories! Keep on the lookout for our next question coming out on Monday! Don’t forget to sign your online housing contract to live on campus for the 2017-18 school year! Re-Contract online at: www.uwgb.edu/housing/recontract!
