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 Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The registration form for the UWM Panther Pick up is at the bottom of this webpage. We have extended the sign up deadline! Please sign up by Tuesday, August 6th.

For students arriving to the Milwaukee Airport (MKE), UWM schedules shuttle reservations on behalf of the student. Students arriving to Milwaukee Airport can arrive at any time on Thursday, August 15, 2019 (for Graduate students with assistantships) and on Thursday August 22,2019 (for all other students). More information will be provided after you register for Panther Pick Up.

For students arriving to Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD), UWM staff will be at the airport on Thursday, August 22, 2019 from 10:00am to 5:00pm to welcome you. 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 2019 Panther Pick Up.
