Public Records Request

As a unit of the state government, UW-Madison is subject to the Public Records Law and the records of University officers and employees are subject to public access. A "record" is any material on which information is recorded, regardless of physical form or characteristics, that relates to University business. This includes anything in an electronic format, such as emails. All open records requests should be submitted through the UW-Madison Public Records Portal and will be handled by the Public Records Custodian at UW-Madison.
