Are off-campus housing and apartments inspected or approved by UWM?

No. All units listed on the UWM Neighborhood Housing Office website are private landlords and property management companies. However, the NHO does operate a Good Neighbor program that awards badges to landlords and rental companies that meet several criteria including:

  • Must have take the City of Milwaukee Landlord Training Course in the last 10 years
  • Pass a City of Milwaukee property check to ensure they are in compliance with all city ordinances
  • Pass a CCAP background check with no rental related or safety concerns
  • Must not have more than 3 or more unresolved tenant complaints with the University Legal Clinic or the Neighborhood Housing Office from the past 12 months.
