UWM at Waukesha History

UWM at Waukesha was created in 2018 when UW-Waukesha joined with UWM as part of the University of Wisconsin System’s reorganization of the two-year campuses formerly known as UW Colleges. Now students at the Waukesha campus get the benefits of being part of a large research university, including big UWM social events and Panther basketball games, while still enjoying a small, friendly college community on their home campus. Together, the campuses provide more valuable options for students and their families.
