COVID-19 Screening Test Available To Off-Campus Students

Students at the Milwaukee campus who live off campus have several options for testing.

Those with symptoms should make an appointment to be tested at Norris Health Center.

Off-campus students who don’t have symptoms can get a test in the UWM Student Union beginning Friday, Sept. 25. That testing will be available from 3 to 4:15 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Fridays. That also requires an appointment.

Students who test positive or who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 based on symptoms should report that using UWM’s online self-reporting form.

Testing also is available in Milwaukee County at community health centers and health system locations. Call the location you choose to schedule an appointment.

Shalem Healing is hosting free drive-up/walk-up testing in the Bader Philanthropies parking lot, 3300 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30. No appointment is needed.
