Other Downtown Accommodations

UWM is located only a few miles north of downtown. The quickest, easiest, and most scenic way to get to the campus is to drive up the lakefront on Lincoln Memorial Drive until it intersects with Lake Drive. Proceed north on Lake until you reach Kenwood Boulevard, where you will turn left (west). The campus is straight ahead just passed Downer Ave. (You can also take Prospect Avenue north until it intersects with North Avenue, then take North Avenue to Lake Drive, then to Kenwood.)

North of campus (Glendale area) Accommodations:

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. To get to the UWM campus, take Silver Spring Drive east (toward Lake Michigan) from Port Washington Road until you reach Lake Drive, then turn right onto Lake Drive (south). Keep on Lake Drive until you reach Edgewood Ave., where you will turn right. Downer Ave. borders the eastern edge of the campus.
