Is the on campus cafeteria open 24/7?
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Our Sandburg residence hall dining halls close at 7pm daily, and Cambridge at 7:30 except for Saturday and Sunday when they close earlier. There are still plenty of places around campus and off that are open beyond 7pm that students can eat at.

If you are an incoming transfer student, how does this affect your financial aid package?
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Financial Aid is determined based on your FAFSA and not whether a student is a transfer or freshman. FAFSA uses the cost of attendance as well as the EFC to determine aid, it can depend on how many loans a student has taken out at their previous college/university as well.

WHAT I LIKED

UWM is an amazing city school- so close to the city and events for students and the general public of Milwaukee. My most favorite thing is the easy transportation on our free bus passes we get through the school because it allows me to explore the campus and the city and truly live a fun college life! My major is also going swimmingly well and the teachers are so supportive and make it a personalized experience (as a musical theatre major).

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not much! The dorms are typical living commendations for students, but still, they aren't the best. Cambridge, Riverview, and Kenilworth students have to deal with the shuttle if they don't have their own car so it is tiresome to rely on a bus for getting to classes and being farther from campus.

There are many things I liked about this school. I liked that students were willing to help one another succeed, the professors cared about their students, and the overall environment was enriching.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like how the Wi-Fi inside the engineering and mathematical sciences didn't work well when most of the time I was trying to access the internet to do schoolwork.

WHAT I LIKED

The education was great. Teachers were ready and willing to help (minus physics. But had ample TA tutors) but literally had tutors and TA’s for every single class out there.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus was clicky.
