Does UWM provide personal protective equipment (PPE)? If so, how do I get it?

December 7, 2021

The university is purchasing personal protective equipment at a central level that is distributed to any campus department that needs it for essential operations. This program is intended to supplement regular procurement by campus departments by serving as a reserve supply when items are difficult to obtain through regular vendors.

PPE and other supplies being purchased at a central level include:

  • Disposable exam gloves
  • Disposable procedure “surgical” masks
  • Cloth face coverings/masks
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant spray bottles

If needed, employees can request items through the UWM PPE request form. These items will be available through the Spring 2022 semester.

Any updated guidance will be shared with the campus community as soon as it is available.
