Occupying a building originally built in 1914 as a Ford Model T plant, the renovated Kenilworth Square Apartments opened in 2006, offering truly unique living options on Milwaukee’s Eastside for UWM upper-level students and staff. The first floor of Kenilworth includes retail space currently occupied by a pizza parlor, 24-hour gym, salon, and a national home furnishings/clothing chain. On the upper floors, approximately 330 students live in one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. Kenilworth Square also has approximately 20 apartments reserved for short-term guest housing, for the use of UWM families, friends and visitors.
Visitors will be able to tour a variety of apartments within the building, led by UWM University Housing Tour Guides. (approximate time: 20 minutes). Because the building is an active residence for current students, visitors are required to be escorted by a tour guide.
