Places to Stay

Unfortunately there are no hotels located in the immediate vicinity of UWM. However, there are two clusters of hotels located only a few minutes’ drive from campus.


UWM is located only a few miles north of downtown. The quickest, easiest, and most scenic way to get to the UWM Hefter Center is to drive up the lakefront on Lincoln Memorial Drive until it intersects with Lake Drive. You can also take Prospect Avenue north until it intersects with North Avenue, then take North Avenue east to Lake Drive.
