Be On the Safe Side (B.O.S.S.) is a free van escort service to students around the UWM community, and has served almost 1.25 million students since its inception in 2000.
They operate as many as 10 vans, 7 days a week.
Between the hours of 6pm-2am, Sunday - Wednesday and 6pm-4am, Thursday - Saturday while school is in session.
BOSS shuttles students within a 2 mile radius of campus during operating hours.
UWM is located in an area of Milwaukee known as the “East Side.” The East Side has many unique neighborhoods, with many active and engaged long-term residents and students. Neighborhood Relations works as a communication link between those living in the neighborhoods, the city of Milwaukee, and the university.
Tips for living off campus and being a “good neighbor” are sent to students living off-campus every year, and can be a helpful tool for parents and families when preparing their student for off-campus living.
