Facilities/Instrumentation - How to Place Orders for PPE Equipment

This article describes how to place and pick up your order for PPE equipment.


  • Entomology, Plant Pathology, and Forest & Wildlife faculty, students, and staff; Hub staff


Departments, centers and other units can now order many COVID PPE supplies directly through Shop@UW for next-day delivery.

The process for ordering COVID-19 related PPE has changed. There is now a streamlined process for individual requisitioners to order all COVID-19 related PPE supplies through ShopUW+ using their own NetID and password. As such, centralized ordering through Mandy Goetsch in the CALS Dean’s Office is ending.

Please place PPE orders consistent with your unit/department’s supply ordering process. Masks (disposable and reusable), mask fitters, disposable gloves, face shields, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes are available at no cost to campus units. Orders will typically be delivered the next working day after the order is placed.

To find these items from the ShopUW+ home page, go to Shopping Home > Facility Supplies > MDS Warehouse.  A keyword search (e.g. “mask”) can be used to find the items of interest. Items that are designated as COVID-19 PPE will have no associated cost. Please ensure your cart has no cost associated with it at checkout.

Please note that N95’s and PAPR’s (power air-purifying respirators) are not included in this process, as they are more difficult to obtain. For items like N95’s and PAPR’s, please use the EOC PPE request form.


  • Please direct questions on this process to the Contact Us email at the bottom of the ShopUW+ homepage.
