Parking On Campus

Parking is free for visitors attending a tour or information session. Please follow these instructions carefully to secure your space for free.

Our free parking lot is located at 2033 E. Hartford Avenue Milwaukee, WI 53211 in the Engelmann/SARUP Surface Lot.

You may park at any spot with a bag over the meter that reads “Reserved: Welcome Center Guests Only.” Please write down your license plate number as you leave your car and immediately head inside the Welcome Center to get your parking validated.

We are unable to dismiss parking citations. To avoid receiving a parking ticket, follow any additional posted parking signage or restrictions.
Not parking at the Welcome Center?

If you choose to park in a different lot, we will not be able to validate your parking. If you’re not stopping into the Welcome Center and want to head straight to your information session, look up the location of your information session.

Arriving To Your Campus Tour

When arriving for a campus tour please allow yourself at least 10 minutes to walk from your car to the Welcome Center. 

Your tour experience consists of a presentation and a 90 minute walking tour of campus. Please note our tour groups depart from the Welcome Center 20-30 minutes after the start time of your campus tour experience. Should you be arriving late, give our Welcome Center a call 414-229-4397.

Pass the School of Architecture & Urban Planning

Walk toward the sidewalk with the field on your right toward the Welcome Center sign. Once at the sidewalk, turn left and head under the School of Architecture building walkway and arrive at Maryland Avenue.

Follow the directional signs

Look for the Welcome Center sign on your right directing you to the right (don’t cross the street). Turn right to head south on the sidewalk.

Arrive at the Welcome Center

Walk under the pedestrian bridge with the UWM logo. The Welcome Center is on the right side of the sidewalk. Enter the doors facing Maryland Avenue (stoplight) and the front desk is on your right.

Find Your Information Session

When scheduling a UWM campus tour, we recommend selecting an Academic or Campus Resource Information Session to pair with your campus tour. These sessions are recommended for students who have decided on their major course of study or are exploring potential majors and resources. As a prospective student, your session gives you an opportunity to learn specifics about your desired major and the school or college that offers the program.
