User Responsibilities for the Farmhouse at the UWM Saukville Field Station

Our housing is provided for the convenience of those who are working or visiting on station. There is no housekeeping staff nor anyone available to take care of your day-to-day needs. Our custodial services are provided by the same person who cares for all of the Saukville Field Station. Please keep this in mind and pitch in.

  • Please bring your own linens, as the Saukville Field Station does not provide pillows, blankets, or towels.
  • There is a phone that can be used for local calls. It is attached to the main # on campus which is 262-675-6844.
  • The kitchen is equipped with standard appliances, cookware, dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies, etc.
  • When you leave, try to leave everything just a bit cleaner than you found it. If something is broken or needs repair, please contact Paul or Ron.

Paul Engevold, Interim Director, at 414-659-4179

Ron Tagye, Superintendent of Building & Grounds, at 262-623-8893
