Getting to

We’re excited to welcome you to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh! Please use this page as a resource for planning your trip to UWO. If you have any questions or need directions as you are driving, please contact our office at or call (920) 424-3269.


Titan Takeoff attendees are permitted to park in Lot #15, which is located on Algoma Blvd. Across from Reeve Memorial Union (use 725 Algoma Blvd. for your GPS). No parking permit will be needed if you park in Lot #15. Parking spaces are limited so we ask that students and their guests carpool to be sure there is enough space for all of our guests.

Important notes about parking:  

  • Visit this website for updates about construction on Interstate 41.  
  • Do not park in metered or restricted spaces. Overnight parking in this lot is prohibited.  
  • The distance from the parking lots to the check-in tables in Reeve Memorial Union is about a five-minute walk. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes, as you’ll be walking throughout campus during the day.

      UW Oshkosh Email Update:

      Multi-Factor Authentication is two-step verification process that each UWO student must use when accessing their Outlook email account. This authentication process is to better secure your email, especially when accessing sensitive information. Because passwords can be forgotten, stolen, or compromised, this additional security step helps to make your account more difficult for others to access.

      The UW Oshkosh IT Department has step-by-step instructions as to how to set this up on their website here.
