Building Access and Visiting

Hours and access

The Golda Meir Library building, its material collections, and selected research computers (which provide access to our online collections) are open to the general public. After 11PM, a current UWM ID (PantherCard) is required for entrance. See the hours page for more information.


This campus map includes parking garage locations on campus. The nearest public parking to the library building is the Union Garage. Users are encouraged to use public transit or paid campus parking: on-street parking is extremely limited and difficult to find.

This Please contact the UWM Parking and Transit Office at (414) 229-5644 for more information about parking at UWM.

Check-out privileges and Off-campus access

A current UWM account (ePanther ID) is required to use most of the computers, and to check out materials. Osher Lifelong Learning members, Milwaukee area school teachers, University of Wisconsin-affiliated individuals, and MPS High School Honors Students may also check out books. Alumni do not have special loan privileges, but are encouraged to join the community borrowing program.

Only current UWM students, staff, and faculty (including emeriti) can access our electronic subscription resources off-campus.

Non-UWM Borrowers

Anyone can join the community borrowing program, which includes circulation privileges with membership. Additionally, materials may be requested via your local library's interlibrary loan service.
