What is the housing situation?

Please see www.uwsuper.edu/oip/intl_pros/housingIntl.cfm.

 

Is on-campus housing guaranteed?

In recent years, all students who have submitted their housing contracts and security deposits by the deadline (July 1 for the Fall semester, December 1 for the Spring semester) have successfully been placed in the residence halls.

What is the campus like?

The best way to see our campus, without actually visiting, is by taking a Campus Tour!

 
What about campus safety?

UW-Superior is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Walkways and parking lots are well-lighted and equipped with emergency telephones linked directly to the campus safety office. Campus safety officers are on duty around the clock and will escort students when requested.

Residence Hall entry doors are locked at all times and guests must be escorted. A professional hall director supervises each building. All rooms have smoke detectors.

Will I be able to adjust to life in the United States?

To help you make a smooth transition to college life in America, UW-Superior offers you your own support services on campus. Staff at the Office of International Programs can give you information and advice on personal, academic, immigration, and even financial concerns. They also organize a new student orientation program to welcome international students arriving at UW-Superior for the first time.

We also encourage international students to join the World Student Association (WSA), an active group of internationally-minded students that organizes films, dinners, picnics, Cultural Night, and trips for skiing, shopping, and cultural excursions. 

What opportunities are there outside the classroom?

How is the food in the cafeteria?

Our food service offers many different types of food at each meal. You can eat anything that's available, and you can eat whenever you like during the day. Our workers will work with you to meet special dietary needs or to provide vegetarian meals. They also will work with you to include spices and native foods from your homeland.

 
Can I play a sport at UW-Superior?

Most American universities have 'university sponsored teams' in various sports. These are called 'varsity sports.' UW-Superior has the following varsity sports:

  • Men: Baseball, basketball, cross country, ice hockey and track and field 

  • Women: Basketball, Cross Country, Golf, Ice Hockey, Soccer, Softball, Track & Field, and Volleyball

Student athletes are usually 'recruited' by the coach of each sport to be a part of the team BEFORE they arrive at UW-Superior. However, most sports also hold 'Walk-on Tryouts' just before the semester starts. At this time, a student can walk in and tryout for the team.

Students interested in participating in activities on an informal basis, there are dozens of opportunities through the Marcovich Wellness Center.
