Please note: due to the holidays, the Access Control and Fingerprinting office will be CLOSED Dec. 24-Jan. 2. Thank you for your understanding, and happy holidays!

The UW–Madison Police Department is happy to offer fingerprinting services Monday-Thursday, 8:15 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Appointments are not necessary — just stop by during the above hours.

As of August 1, 2018, our fingerprinting office has been relocated to the main UWPD headquarters, located at 1429 Monroe Street (across from Camp Randall Stadium, next to the Varsity Quarters apartment complex).

Fingerprinting is available to anyone, not just UW-Madison affiliated staff/students.

Requirements for Fingerprinting

  • Completed fingerprint cards (if provided by requesting agency)
  • Signature on each card — must be done at the time of fingerprinting
  • Government-issued photo ID (drivers license, passport, etc.)
  • $11 (cash, check, or credit card) for each completed fingerprint card

For more information about our fingerprinting services, call (608) 265-3279.

IMPORTANT NOTE: UWPD does not offer Livescan Fingerprint services.
