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 1, 2018.

For students arriving to the Milwaukee Airport (MKE), 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 at any time on Friday, August 17, 2018.

For students arriving to Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD), UWM staff will be at the airport on Monday, August 20, 2018 and Friday, August 24, 2018 from 10:00am to 5:00pm to guide you to arranged transportation. UWM staff waits for arriving students in the international terminal (terminal 5), near the doors where arriving passengers exit the U.S. 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. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you book a flight that lands no later than 3:00pm. 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.  If you arrive after 5:00pm, please see our directions to campus information.

Students will not be charged any fee for the Fall 2018 Panther Pick Up.
