Midwest Mesoamericanist Meeting

Accommodations

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.

Downtown

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.

North of campus (Glendale area):

The following hotels are located on Port Washington Road in a nice residential area a few miles north of campus. They would be a good choice if staying downtown is not a priority for you.
