UWL Student Affairs
Emergency Fund: The University of Wisconsin—La Crosse recognizes that many students may experience unexpected financial hardship and challenge while attending college. The Fund was established in 2008 to honor former university professor and administrator Maurice O. Graff, a person who was a strong student advocate and who cared deeply about students’ well-being. Initially seeded by anonymous donors, the purpose of the Fund is to provide students some monetary relief during moments of financial emergency. Grants are typically intended to assist with things like car repairs, minor medical bills, emergency housing expenses, and unexpected transportation costs.
Office of Residence Life: We strive to create safe and inclusive homes for our students to develop and achieve personally, academically, and professionally. Some of the most tangible ways we do this is through facility improvements and direct feedback from our residents and student staff.
Campus Child Center: We are a state licensed and nationally accredited group child care setting providing care and education to the children of University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students, staff, and faculty.
