Directions and Contact Information

Please be aware that there are several surface street and freeway on- and off-ramp closures due to the I-43 North-South construction project between Silver Spring Drive and WIS 60 in Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties that may impact travel to and/or from campus. You can view additional information, including current closures, at WisDOT's I-43 North-South construction website.

Additionally, due to a utilities project to add a new municipal water main in the Village of River Hills by the Mequon Water Utility (which USM will also be accessing), there will be ongoing partial closures to surface streets around the campus, as well as campus roads. We will provide updates on this page as we become aware of them. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
