Walk to Work

Walk to Work Program

UWM encourages employees to live near campus through a variety of ways.  If you are interested in purchasing or renting a home in the neighborhoods surrounding the UWM campus, take a look at the Housing Near UWM section on this page, which contains sales and rental listings in the area. Please note that these are only a small percentage of available sales listings. Employees are also encouraged to search realtor listings and to tour the neighborhoods to find houses for sale that are not included on this listing.

Please be aware of the following:

This listing service is available to UWM Faculty/Staff/Graduate Students ONLY. The properties advertised are available upon an equal opportunity basis. (See statement below). The properties listed are neither University-inspected nor approved. Properties will only be posted if they fall within the Neighborhood Relations geographical boundaries (Capitol Drive to Brady Street to the north/south and Holton Avenue to Lake Michigan to the west/east). The City of Milwaukee limits occupancy to no more than 3 unrelated persons per unit. Violators may be fined and/or evicted. Remaining occupants may be responsible for the entire lease payment. All information submitted for posting will become public, obtainable from this website.

If interested in posting a property, please e-mail Laura Purifoy at lpurifoy@uwm.edu with address of property, a brief description, rent, availability, and contact information.
