Not just academics

Students: Please don't go hungry!

Students, if you struggle to feed your children (or yourself), please visit the MATC Student Food Pantry in Room S215 of the Downtown Milwaukee Campus (S Building). Additional food pantries are located in the Student Life offices at the regional campuses and Walker’s Square.

You can also visit the the Student Resource Center in S215, where the Hunger Task Force assists with FoodShare enrollment, for help with:

  • housing, utility bills and homelessness;
  • health care, including mental health;
  • child care and child support (for fathers and mothers);
  • domestic violence; and
  • transportation and drivers license recovery.

Services are confidential and free to MATC students.

Students: Get urgent healthcare for free

Full- and part-time MATC students can receive treatment for the flu, pink eye, allergies, sprains and more with no out-of-pocket costs through FastCare! Pregnancy and other lab tests are also available. Student fees paid to MATC are used to cover bills for urgent medical visits.

Care is offered at the Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin's FastCare clinics, including the new McKinley Health Center on 6th Street just north of the Downtown Campus. Students may also use Virtual Clinic.

Vision care is important for learning! 

If you do not have vision insurance but are in need of an eye appointment and glasses, the MATC Student Resource Center can connect you to the LensCrafters One Sight program. This program provides an eye exam and pair of glasses at no cost to eligible MATC students.

Visit the the Student Resource Center in S215 and ask staff for access to the LensCrafters program. 

Don't put off that dental care, either

Speaking of health care: Did you know you can get an annual dental check-up at the MATC Dental Clinic at the Downtown Campus for $40? The clinic is open to the public and students, children and adults.
