Campus and Visitor Relations offers a number of publications as PDF downloads or in person when you visit us on campus.

UW–Madison departments may order many of these publications directly through Shop@UW (formerly Materials Distribution Service).

Our Welcome Desks at Union South and Memorial Union also have other useful publications which will help you make the most of your visit. Our staff will be happy to assist you with your selections.

Our office also offers materials for K-8 classrooms. Through the Bucky’s Classroom Packages Request, educational leaders can receive displayable University of Wisconsin-Madison materials, such as posters and pennants, as well as individual classroom items for children, including pencils, bookmarks and stickers.
