Our mission is to provide safe, inclusive, and supportive living and learning environments that positively impact student engagement, retention and success.

Living on campus can be one of the most important and memorable parts of the total college experience. It provides opportunities to make new friends, become a part of a community and benefit from the residence hall's educational, cultural, social and recreational activities.

Housing Revised Occupancy for Academic 2020-21  

We heard from many of you and understand the concerns you expressed about being relocated from double occupancy room in apartments or suites.  After thoughtful discussion among our Fall 2020 Planning Task Force, we have adjusted our housing model to permit double occupancy in apartments and double suites. Traditional residence halls will continue to have single occupancy to reduce density on each floor based on the number of students who will share restroom facilities. 

Students in traditional halls will be assigned a single room, however, will be charged the double room rate that would be typical of those accommodations. Students in suites and apartments will pay the standard 2020-2021 room rates as advertised. 

Please understand the American College Health Association (ACHA) guidelines still recommend the safest campus housing, under the threat of COVID-19, is with single-room occupancy. Additional guidance suggests double occupancy is best undertaken when residents have at least 100 sq. ft. per person. This was the reason for our original decision. However, having received appeals by many of our students in apartments and suites to maintain their current living arrangement, we will agree to do so, but ask that each person be required to sign a waiver, recognizing this is their choice of living arrangement. 

To allow for the reduction in the number of spaces available for on-campus living, we will continue to waive the 3-year residency requirement for the 2020-21 school year (only this year), and deposits will be returned to those students who cancel their on-campus housing application by the priority deadline of July 1, 2020 and have an approved off-campus application. 

For questions, please review the FAQ for Academic 2020-2021.




Thank you for your patience and understanding with the halted move-out process. Waukesha has given Carroll University permission to resume move-out beginning Saturday, April 25. Our process aligns with university efforts to minimize the spread of the coronavirus, encourage social distancing, and seeks to provide students and their families flexibility in making necessary arrangements. 


Move-out Scheduling   

You must sign up for a move-out date and time. Your Area Director (AD) will e-mail you with information on how to sign up for a move-out date and time and other relevant move-out information. Move-out will be April 25-May 8, May 10-17 and May 26-28. During your scheduled time, you can access your building and space to collect belongings. Residents must complete move-out by the end of their window to allow the next group to enter. A complete move-out means ALL items (excluding furniture provided by the university) must be removed.  

We recognize some students and their families may not feel comfortable moving out during the Safer at Home order. These students can sign up for a check-out May 26-28 through the general sign-up process. If you have extenuating circumstances, please complete this form with an explanation of your circumstances and the date you expect to be able to move out. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  


Move-Out Assistance     

Residents are permitted one adult (18 years of age or older) to help. This adult must be free of Covid-19 symptoms, and it is strongly advised you do not bring an adult who is immunocompromised. Pets, additional guests or children are not permitted in halls during move-out. Those who bring them will be asked to leave and reschedule. We encourage using gloves, face masks and disinfectant wipes throughout move-out, in addition to frequent hand washing, as directed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). 

Unfortunately, carts and other moving equipment will not be available, and wsincerely apologize for this inconvenience. We encourage you to bring items such as a dolly or cart to use 



To limit congestion outside halls, there is a “one vehicle per resident policy for move-out. Parking will be available near all halls. Please do not block traffic and obey parking regulations. If you are a garage-usebringing U-Haul or other vehicle, the door clearance is 6 feet, 8 inches.

Residents do not need to check out with residence life staff. Residents will only be required to remove belongings, clean the unit, return furniture to its original configuration, check mailboxes and return keys.
