Smudging within the residence halls

Smudging is a ritual used by indigenous people throughout the world in which herbs are used to cleanse persons or places of negative thoughts, bad spirits, or negative energy. Herbs are typically burned in a small shell or other containers that will not burn. 

  • The Dean of Students (DOS) office can grant exceptions to the non-smoking (tobacco-free) policy for smudging purposes. 

  • Individuals who wish to practice smudging should contact their residence hall director with information on when and where they plan to hold their ceremony

    • Herbs to be burned are: sage, cedar, or sweetgrass

Gender-Inclusive Housing Options

Housing and Residence Life is committed to fostering an inclusive environment that provides a safe, accessible, and respectful community for all. We understand that when your gender identity/expression is not readily reflected when giving a preference for where you would like to live, it is difficult to determine what would be optimal for you. Housing and Residence Life ​has the following options available for students.

 Housing Application Process

​​Housing Application and Assignments 
  • On our housing application, there is an optional section for students to share their gender identity. There is a drop-down option, but also a space for students to self-identify if their gender identity is not listed.
  • Housing and Residence Life uses the binary cis-genders and then works one on one with students who do not identify with their assigned gender at birth. 

  • Students may already have a roommate lined up that is accepting of their gender identity whether it's someone who has a similar gender identity or not. These roommate requests can be sent to our housing assignments coordinator via UWSP email. 
  • If students are looking for someone to room with, Housing and Residence Life can assist with that matching process as our housing application collects information on gender identity and allyship. If a student is transitioning and uncomfortable living with a roommate, please reach out directly to our housing assignments coordinator for options. 

Preferred Name 
  • Students can list their preferred name through the university system. 

Who to contact with questions regarding gender-inclusive options and roommate requests 
  • If you would like to connect directly with our housing assignments coordinator, please see our "Meet Our Team" webpage here. Our housing assignments coordinator is Safe Zone trained and is happy to assist all students. They will work with the student individually to provide housing that they are most comfortable with so that their first year at UWSP (and beyond) is successful.

  • There are two restroom facilities on each floor of traditional halls, one designated as male and the other as a female. On the second floor of Hansen, Knutzen, May Roach, Smith, Steiner, and Watson, one of the two bathrooms is designated as "all-gender" (any identifying gender can use this restroom); the other restroom on that floor is either designated as female or male-identifying. 

Hyer Hall

  • Accommodations in this hall are reserved for residents who will be 21 years old or older by the first day of the semester. Rooms are single-occupancy and rooms are co-ed throughout the building. Restroom facilities are designated as male on the first and fourth floors, and female on the second and third floors. 

The Suites@201

Each suite accommodates four residents (each student has their own lockable bedroom) and provides a full kitchen, living room, and three-part restroom (toilet, shower, and vanity). 

  • Gender-inclusive housing allows same-gender roommates, opposite-gender roommates, or other gender-identity roommate pairings, regardless of physical sexual characteristics.
