At UWM, your main means of contact with your advisor and professors will be your UWM PantherLink e-mail.  You can also set up a calendar through your email to keep track of your class schedule and appointments.

After you have been admitted to UWM, you can set up your UWM e-mail account by visiting the Identity & Access Management webpage.  Type in your UWM student ID number (99X-XX-XXX) and your date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy).  Be sure to follow the instructions carefully.

If you have any questions about your e-mail address or account, please contact the help desk at or 414-229-4040.

Cell Phone
We recommend all students have a cell phone while at UWM.  You can either bring a phone with a plan from home or arrange to have services here in the U.S.  Although international students sometimes encounter problems enrolling in a cell phone plan without a social security number, some providers are willing to offer services without it.  Explain your situation with an employee at one of the provider stores and they should be able to work something out.

Information on cell phone provider stores that are located near campus is below:
