CALS Residence Halls

Jorns Hall and Humphrey Hall provide a comfortable home for students and visitors while on campus. These residence halls are located on the scenic shores of Lake Mendota at 650 Babcock Drive.

These two dormitories are not part of the larger UW-Housing Residence Hall system, but instead owned by the College of Ag and Life Sciences. The dorms provide housing for Farm and Industry Short Course students from November – April. They also house 25-40 full-time degree students on a contract basis.  Short-term or group housing is also available from mid-April through mid-October. Living arrangements in the Short Course dormitories, as in other dormitories, are governed by the Board of Regents rules and state statutes.

Short Term Guests

Floors are divided by gender. Guests must be 18 years of age to stay in Humphrey and Jorns Halls. Due to the function and purpose of the building, we are unable to accommodate families. For the same reason, couples are not permitted to stay unless both individuals are on University related business. We are unable to accommodate individuals visiting campus for athletic games or campus visits. UW departments and off campus groups here on official university business may reserve blocks of singles, doubles and triple shared rooms for visits and conference purposes. The dorms have daily and weekly rates. Guests staying more than four weeks may obtain special rates by signing a contract and paying a $100 refundable damage deposit.
Guests are charged $20.00 per night and must pay for the full stay before checking in. Guests can pay with a credit or debit card online prior to check-in, using the link provided in a confirmation email. Guest are also welcome to pay by personal check or exact cash at time of check-in. Check-in is between 12:00pm and 10:00pm. Check-out is 11:00am after the last evening of your stay.
