Yes. As detailed in UWM’s Interim CovidRelated Health and Safety Rules, unvaccinated students and employees who are not fully online/remote are required to test weekly for COVID-19. It is highly recommended that those requiring weekly testing use the free testing available on each UWM campus.

All students and employees must make an appointment at www.doineedacovid19test.com.

Main campus: Students and employees who do not have COVID-19 symptoms can get tested in the UWM Wisconsin Room Lounge from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Washington County campus: Testing is available 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. Sept. 8, Sept. 14, Sept. 22, Sept. 28 at the UWM at Washington County gymnasium.

UWM will assume all students and staff are unvaccinated and required to test weekly unless they have submitted proof of vaccination or another exemption to the Testing Exemption Form.
