The Ave contract begins August 28, 2011 and ends May 12, 2012.  You will be able to reside in your apartment for all breaks during the two-semester academic year, including Thanksgiving, Winter, J-Term, and Spring Break.
If you wish to eat meals on campus, you may sign up for a meal plan by contacting the meal plan office at 608-785-8885 to sign up for a meal plan. The Off-Campus Meal Plan works well if you are considering eating on-campus on a semi-regular basis. Initial Price: $350 for 50 Meals (includes sign-up fee, paid once per academic year) after that, blocks of ten meals can be purchased for $53.00.


All residents of the The Ave who have cars will be able to sign up for a parking sticker.  When you arrive you may notice the lot next to The Ave is small, but there is an additional parking lot across the street by the YMCA.  Parking spots will not be assigned; parking will be first come, first served.  Everyone will have a parking spot; it will just vary if you find a spot in the extended lot or in the lot next to The Ave.
