Shifting to online classes

UWM has made the decision to shift to primarily remote instruction following the Thanksgiving recess (Nov. 25-29). 
Get a COVID-19 test before you travel home and before you return to campus. Tests are available on campus for all students.

Wait to begin your rental search for fall

Did you know landlords actually raise the price of rent if you sign a lease too early because they know students are eager to find a place to rent off-campus?

The Neighborhood Housing Office recommends looking for rentals no earlier than 2-3 months in advance. Landlords usually do not know who is renewing their leases until 60 days before move out (typically June-August).
Sign up for the Preferred Tenant Program! It's a free, online rental education course on Canvas. Participating landlords offer discounts on rent to students who complete the program.
