Titan Card

All FVTC students residing in the Gruenhagen Conference Center will be required to purchase an affiliate UW Oshkosh identification card (TitanCard).  The cost of this card is $20.00.  The card will be used for various purposes on the UW Oshkosh campus, including facility entrance access and dining services.

Student Meal Plan Option

UW Oshkosh offers flexible meal plans for students.  Our meal plans are a perfect blend of meals and Titan Dollars, allowing students to have flexibility with their eating options on Campus:  when, where and what they choose to eat.  Gruenhagen residents are considered “Off-Campus or Commuter students” since they live in the conference center, not the Resident Halls. Fox Valley Technical College students do not have UWO billing accounts, therefore meal plans must be paid for prior to activation at Titan Central, located in Reeve Memorial Union.  For more information visit Meal Plans.


Every motor vehicle (including motorcycles and mopeds) on University property must have a valid parking permit.  Resident permits are limited, but FVTC and UW College students residing in Gruenhagen are guaranteed a parking permit, provided they send in their parking application by the deadline (July 31st of each year). For more information visit Parking Services at UW Oshkosh.

Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC)

The SRWC is one of the finest facilities of its kind, providing students with terrific opportunities for recreation, fitness and fun!  At an additional cost, your TitanCard will give you access to group exercise classes, over 100 pieces of cardio equipment, a jogging/walking track, basketball and volleyball courts, a climbing wall and more! For more information visit Student Recreation and Wellness.

Building Security

Side entrances to Gruenhagen are locked 24 hours a day. Students can use their TitanCard to access the building or use the main entrance (open 7:00 a.m.–11:00 p.m.).  Students are responsible for their safety and the safety of others.  By not allowing others to follow you into a building and being aware of your surroundings, you can prevent issues from occurring.


Community Advisors (CAs) are UW Oshkosh undergraduate students who are trained to assist resident hall students in many ways.  For example, he or she can answer questions about campus, resolve roommate conflicts, advise students in developing better study skills, etc. CAs also plan a number of events within the hall and encourage students to get involved outside of the classroom.
