I have included a number of important items regarding your stay in Milwaukee, including housing. Please look over the information below and call me if you have any questions.

Milwaukee hospitalAlways a big question for students. Here in Milwaukee, housing is provided in facilities off campus. Students share comfortable, fully furnished apartments, complete with wireless internet access, in the Library Hill complex which is about 5 blocks from the hospital. Your address will be:

750 North 8th Street
Milwaukee, WI 53233

Students are responsible for bringing their own bath and bed linens (totwels, sheets, blanket, comforter, pillow), as well as toiletries (beds are twin size). You will probably want to buy food and related items once you get to Milwaukee. SPECIAL NOTE: Please be advised that pets are not allowed in the Aurora student apartments and/or in the Aurora facilities. Please make appropriate arrangements for your pets before you get to Milwaukee.

A packet containing your keys, directions, and information about your housing and parking assignments will be available in the hospital Security Office, located in the Emergency Room waiting area (west side of the hospital; enter parking lot off State Street - see directions above) any time after 3:30 p.m. the Friday before you start. Please be prepared to make a $15.00 deposit (CASH NOT ACCEPTED; CHECK REQUIRED) at the time you pick up your key packet. (NOTE: YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PICK UP YOUR PACKET WITHOUT SUBMITTING THIS $15.00 CHECK). You will get the check back at the end of the rotation when all ASMC property is accounted for.


Meals are the student's responsibility, but a thoroughly equipped kitchen is provided in your apartment (microwave, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, as well as dishes, and pots/pans). If cooking is not your strong point, a full service cafeteria is available at the hospital and there are also a number of carry-out places within a block or two of the apartment. In addition, many noon conferences at the hospital provide complimentary lunch to conference attendees. Students are also provided meal cards for each night they are on call. Milwaukee is also known for a number of great restaurants - take advantage of this while you are here.


Mail from the University is usually forwarded to clerkship coordinators; however, during these four weeks you may want to tell people to address mail as follows:

Molly Wiese, Coordinator, Medical Students
ATTN: (Your Name), Medical Student
Aurora Sinai Medical Center
945 North 12th Street; OHC Room 3053
Milwaukee, WI 53233

Please DO NOT have your mail actually forwarded to me through the US Post Office. This causes confusion for the hospital mailroom and will result in you possibly not receiving your mail.


Parking is available free of charge on a surface lot located directly behind the hospital. While we understand that this is away from your apartment, street parking in that area is limited and a permit from the Milwaukee Police Department is required - any parking tickets you receive are your responsibility. Details regarding parking will be in your packets.

Contact Information

We hope this information helps you prepare for coming to Milwaukee. If you have any questions, you may either call or e-mail Molly Wiese at (414) 219-7749 or We look forward to meeting you!
