Getting To Campus

The UWM campus is located north of downtown Milwaukee just blocks from Lake Michigan. It is accessible from I-43 or from Lincoln Memorial Drive.

The scenic lake route from all directions: From I-43 or I-94 near Downtown, take I-794 east to Lakefront exit. Go north along the lake on Lincoln Memorial Dr. to the top of the hill, where Lincoln Memorial Dr. becomes E. Kenwood Blvd. and intersects with N. Lake Dr. Go straight (west) on Kenwood five blocks to campus.

From the south or west:
Take I-43 north to the Capitol Dr. East exit. Go east on Capitol to N. Downer Ave., then south on Downer five blocks to campus.

From the north:
Take I-43 south to the Capitol Dr. East exit. Go east on Capitol to N. Downer Ave., then south on Downer five blocks to campus.


At very busy times, parking on the UWM campus can be limited and all parking regulations are strictly enforced.

For events at the Klotsche Center, fans can park in the Pavilion Parking Garage, which is adjacent to the Pavilion. The entrance to the garage can be reached via either Edgewood or Downer. Pay stations for the garage are located at the doorway entrances into the Pavilion.

For events at Engelmann Field, fans can park in surface parking lots both east and west of the field. Entrances to both lots are located off of Hartford Ave. Fans could also park in the Pavilion Parking Garage and walk approximately two blocks to the field.

Construction and Road Closures

The ongoing reconstruction of the Marquette Interchange in downtown Milwaukee means numerous lanes and ramps will be closed throughout the 2006-07 school year. While traffic has continued to move smoothly through the construction zone, one ramp closure could mean the need for a different route to the UWM campus for those traveling from the south and west.
