Union Event Services

Student Union Event Services (EVS) is a sub-unit of the Student Union.

Due to campus being closed until July 31, reservations through Union Event Services will not open until August 1. That date may change as campus determines restrictions for August 2020 and beyond. The best way to make requests for large spaces and/or reserve small meeting rooms is through the EMS Web App located here: https://uwm.edu/emswebapp. We will be making adjustments over the next few months to the room capacities available based on federal, state, and campus recommendations for social distancing.

Please continue to monitor https://uwm.edu/coronavirus/ for more updates on when the Student Union will reopen. 

The Event Services’ email is still being monitored. If you have any inquiries, please direct them to reservat@uwm.edu, and we will get to them as soon as we can. 

Event Services provides a variety of services to the UW-Milwaukee community, including the oversight of approximately 15,000 reservations annually in the 40,000 plus square feet of meeting and convention space of the Student Union. Additionally, EVS staff manage the information services provided at the Union Information Center which includes Ticket Services and Lost & Found.

The Event Services Office is located on the 3rd Level of the Student Union, immediately to the right of the elevators.
