Public Records

Julie Kipp, University Relations and Communications, has been designated as the legal custodian of all public records maintained at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, except for patient health records that are under the control of the Norris Student Health Center or any other health care provider associated with the university.

This campus of the University of Wisconsin System has normal office hours of 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Requests to inspect records or to receive copies of records should be made directly to the designated custodian by telephone, e-mail, or in person at Chapman Hall. Requests will be processed as soon as practicable and without delay.

Requesters may be charged $.25 for each copy made, whether hard physical copy, scanned copy, or other electronic copy version. A two-sided hard copy constitutes two pages. Requesters are not permitted to take photographs of records during any in-person records inspection in lieu of requesting copies of documents.

If mailing of records is requested, postal charges will be added to the copying charge. If a search is necessary to locate records, the requesting party will be so advised and may be charged the actual, necessary and direct cost of location, if the cost exceeds $50. If the total costs of any request exceed $5, prepayment of all charges may be required.
