Student opinion on dining:
Blackhawk Commons is great! If you can't find something that you like to eat at Blackhawk, then you must not like food. It has so much to offer and it's all part of your meal plan. The hours are great, the food is deliscious and the atmosphere is busy & fun. college prowler

Student comments:
There's not much to do around UWP becasue it's kind of separated from everything else. People have to go to Milwaukee for a good time.

UWP is strict, but pretty laid back. Teachers are more understanding with other things that may be going on at home, and are willing to lighten up on the student. As to having the police around campus, they are strict, yet more understanding thatn regular police officers. They don't give tickets out for every little thing.  prowler

Housing info:
UW-Parkside offers two living-learning communities (LLCs) for on campus residents.
Living-learning communities are designed to deliver a variety of educational, social, and developmental programs and services to support students.

Housing Opinions:
Three Types to Choose from – There are the traditional dorms where most of the freshmen stay, these also are the most cheap. It is a great way to meet people and gain some really good friends. The apartments are a little run down and are the oldest housing option on campus. In the apartments though you are with six other people so you do not really get to meet anyone. The apartments are going to be closed this year for renovations. We also have the suites, these are for the upperclassmen. They are also the newest addition, which means they also cost the most. And like the apartments you are kind of closed off from everyone else except your suite mates. college prowler

UW has loads of extra sports facilities, which is a big plus considering their quiet location.

Dining:

Student comments:
Nothing Exceptional, but Still Edible – You pretty much get what you pay for, the food on campus is pretty expensive, but better tasting, while the food by the residence halls is cheaper and some is all-you-can-eat, but isn't overly delicious.

Student opinions:
Dorm Life – I lived in the dorms for three years. Their setup and distance from classes if great the longest walk being about 12 min the shortest being about 3. The bathrooms are well maintained, and every dorm has, a kitchen, a blue ray lounge, game areas, study rooms, and a commons space. The rooms are decent although I would like more outlets. The RA's do a great job helping people bond and having monthly to weekly activities. The cost isn't bad either you pay about the same as living off campus and you don't have to worry about late fees or roommates not paying you for utilities. The program in charge of the dorms is called "Res Life" They try their best to keep dorms a safe and good environment for learning and living. They do have a hard time talking with students on a one on one basis. As well as hiring RA. The y do there best but I have seen some really good people for the job get turned down and some really bad people get hired, but they do their best and the bad ones are let go in a timely manner. Over all I think they are a great place to live.  prowler

The food is okay, they have two main options you can use your meal plans at. An all you can eat dining hall on each side of campus and a hall that is like a subway and has burgers and subs as well. They have unos in the UC in the down under and after 6 pm you can use two of your meal plans on it. They have a market that you can buy sandwiches at.

Student opinion:
Living on campus is fun. The dorm i live in is Wells East. Wells is the best dorm for freshman because it is the biggest because its two dorms within one. there is a lounge which everyone goes to chill and have fun. the cost isn't that expensive and its way better than commuting. when you commute you don't get much privilege. Living in the dorms there isn't much rules either. you're are pretty much free to do what you want. there is no curfew or anything.  prowler
