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 Spring 2021 semester are:

Mondays 9am-11am and Thursdays 11am-2pm.

Emergency Grant Program: The UWM Student Emergency Grant is funded by several private contributions who have contributed to the Chancellor’s Student Success Fund. It is available to all UWM students who meet the criteria listed on the Dean of Students’ webpage. Students who have demonstrated financial need may apply for a UWM Student Emergency Grant to help cover expenses related to unforeseen emergencies, including financial hardships related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
