UW-Madison to refund students for dining and housing expenses

The University of Wisconsin-Madison will be sending housing and dining refunds to students who are leaving campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The refunds will not include the spring break period and they will be issued to students as fast as possible, according to Jeff Novak, the UW Housing Director. 

“It is a prorated credit starting from March 23rd. The refund will be sent to a students bank account if their banking information is on file,” Novak said. “Otherwise, it will be a check cut back to the student and they will receive it through mail.” 

The refund will first be used to pay any outstanding balances on the students’ university account like library fines, late fees, and IT services. After those debts are deducted, the remaining funds will be sent to the student.

For students who are still on campus and couldn’t find a way back home, including international undergraduates, the University is still providing housing and dining resources. 

“We still have full services for students, we have staff available to them,” Novak said. “We have a dining hall right in the vicinity of where they’re living available to them.” 

According to UW Housing, there are about 550 students who are living in the dorms, but most of them have been relocated to the four residence halls located in the Southeast neighborhood of campus.
