Dean Of Students Offers Additional Resources For Students

The Dean of Students Office has several resources available to help support students’ success. Students who have the most urgent need for these resources should contact the Dean of Students Office immediately to access these resources.

  • WiFi Hotspots: With access to internet and reliable connectivity being more important than ever, DOS has launched a WiFi Hotspot checkout program. Students who do not have access to WiFi and who have used all other available financial resources can apply for a hotspot through the Dean of Students Office. There are a limited number of hotspots available for students to check out. Students who are approved for a hotspot will be able to pick up a device from the library at their campus. Devices are loaned out to students for the duration of the semester. Students can apply for a hotspot here.
  • Laptop Loan program: There are currently no loaned devices available. However, students who need a computer should submit an application for a laptop. For students in high need, DOS will work with them to get them a device. Students can apply for a laptop here.
  • Food Center & Pantry:  The UWM FCP continues to serve students. For the most up-to-date information on FCP operations and updates, please visit their Facebook page. Hours of operation for the Fall 2020 semester are: Mondays, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m., and Thursdays, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
  • Emergency Grant Program: The Emergency Grant Program is currently on pause as efforts are made to raise more funds. More information will be forthcoming in October.
  • UWM Student Handbook: Please consider reviewing resources listed in the UWM Student Handbook. The handbook includes academic, campus, and community resources for students in need of assistance.
  • Student Support Team: As always, if there are concerns about a student or know someone who is experiencing challenges or hardship, please submit brief report here. The Dean of Students Office and the Student Support Team will work to help students who face financial, mental health, personal, and campus challenges.
