Will there be mandatory COVID-19 testing on UWM campuses this fall?

October 1, 2021

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.

Vaccinated individuals also may receive COVID-19 tests on campus, if they wish, but it is not mandatory.

All students and employees must make an appointment at uwmke.vivi.healthcare.

Main campus: Students and employees who do not have COVID-19 symptoms can get tested in the UWM Wisconsin Room Lounge from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Washington County campus: Testing is available 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. Oct. 6, 12, 20, 26; Nov. 3, 9, 17, 23; Dec. 1, 7, 15, 21, in Room 148.

Waukesha campus: Testing is available 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. on Oct. 5, 13, 19, 27; Nov. 2, 10, 16, 24, 30; Dec. 8, 14, 22, in Room F004.
