DoS Resources for Students:

WiFi Hotspots: With access to internet and reliable connectivity being more important than ever, we are launching a WiFi Hotspot checkout program. Students who do not have access to WiFi and who have used all other available financial resources can apply for a hotspot through the Dean of Students Office. We have a limited number of hotspots available for students to check out. Students who are approved for a hotspot will be able to pick up a device from the library at their campus. Devices are loaned out to students for the duration of the semester. Students can apply for a hotspot here.

Laptop Loan program: We currently have loaned all devices. However, please still have students who desperately need a computer submit an application for a laptop. For students in high need, we will work with them to get them a device. Students can apply for a laptop here.

Food Center & Pantry:  The UWM FCP continues to serve our students. For the most up-to-date information on FCP operations and updates, please visit their Facebook page.

Hours of operation for the Fall 2020 semester are:

Mondays, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m., and Thursdays, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Emergency Grant Program: The Emergency Grant Program is currently on pause as we raise more funds. However, more information will be forthcoming in October.

UWM Student Handbook: Please consider reviewing resources listed in the UWM Student Handbook. The handbook includes academic, campus, and community resources for students in need of assistance.

Student Support Team: As always, if you are concerned about a student or know someone who is experiencing challenges or hardship, please submit brief report here. The Dean of Students Office and the Student Support Team will work with you to help students who face financial, mental health, personal, and campus challenges.


Reporting Resources:

Confidential Victim Advocate: UWM’s Confidential Survivor Support and Victim Advocacy services continue to be available remotely to students who have experienced sexual, domestic, or relationship violence. UWM’s confidential victim advocate helps survivors understand and navigate their options and can provide emotional support, as well as legal, academic, and medical advocacy. The advocate can assist in locating and connecting students to online resources as well as resources in their community.

For services or questions, please contact the advocate confidentially by phone at 414-229-4582 or send an email to victimadvocacy@uwm.edu.
