UWM has limited large events on campus because of the risk of spreading the coronavirus. But what you do off campus is just as important as what you do on campus.

Remember, what you do affects not just your health, but your roommates, classmates and instructors.

Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Use the self-reporting form to let the Dean of Students Office know you’ve tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19 by a doctor. The office can connect you with resources and answer any questions you have about what to do next. If you live on campus, there’s space available for isolation and quarantine, and meals can be delivered to you. If you need accommodations with your coursework, the Dean of Students Office can help arrange that too.
