UWM Panther Pick Up

As you travel to UWM from far away locations, let us help you on the final part of your journey. UWM assists arriving students at both Milwaukee General Mitchell International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The registration form for the UWM Panther Pick up is at the bottom of this webpage. The deadline to register is Wednesday, August 16, 2017.

For students arriving to the Milwaukee Airport, UWM schedules shuttle reservations on behalf of the student. After collecting your luggage, you simply go to the GoRiteway desk in the baggage claim area of the airport. A shuttle will take you to your UWM residence hall or nearby off-campus address. Students arriving to Milwaukee Airport can arrive on any day and at any time between Saturday, August 19, 2017 and Monday, August 28, 2017.

For students arriving to Chicago O’Hare Airport, UWM staff will be at the airport on August 19, 2017 and August 27, 2017 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport  from 10:00am to 5:00pm to guide you to arranged transportation. UWM staff wait for arriving students in the international terminal (terminal 5), near the doors where arriving passengers exit the US Customs area. If you have an international flight, it is important to anticipate the time it will take to go through the airport’s immigration and customs procedures (which can vary, on average, from 1 to 3 hours) so that you can meet the UWM staff before 5:00pm, when the last Panther Pick Up bus departs. (If you arrive after that time, there are other bus services at the airport that you can use.) For this reason, we strongly recommend that you book a flight that lands no later than 3:00p.m. Also, if you have a domestic flight, anticipate the time (approximately 1 hour) it will take you to go from terminal 1, 2, or 3 to terminal 5.

Students will not be charged any fee for the fall 2017 Panther Pick Up.


The deadline to register for the fall 2017 UWM Panther Pick Up was August 16, 2017. Please email isss@uwm.edu if you have any questions.
